Apply an Editorial Workflow to a Content Type for Drupal 8, 9, and 10

In order to enforce that an editorial workflow is applied to a specific content type you need to update the workflow's configuration. Then, depending on your needs, you may also need to configure new user roles, giving them permission to transition a content item from one state to another.

This process works for any Content Moderation type workflow -- including the Editorial workflow that Drupal provides and any custom workflows you've created.

In this tutorial we'll:

  • Update a workflow so that its rules are applied to a content type
  • Review the list of permissions provided by a workflow and see how we can set things up to restrict certain users to only perform specific transitions

By the end of this tutorial you will be able to configure a workflow so that it applies to one or more content types, and configure permissions so only users in a specific role can transition content items from one state to another.
