CQ5 encompasses several applications which are designed to interact and complement each other. In particular, the Workflow Engine can be used in tight conjunction with several of the other applications.
For example, within CQ5, Web Content Management (CQ WCM) is key. This enables you to generate and publish pages to your website. This functionality is often subject to organizational processes, including steps such as approval and sign-off by various participants. These processes can be represented as workflows, which in turn can be defined within CQ, then applied to the appropriate content pages.
This section covers using Workflows to:
create and edit a new workflow
start an instance of the workflow by applying it to a page of content
complete a step requiring user action
take additional actions on a workflow; for example, suspend, resume, terminate
monitor workflow instances
investigate the history of archived workflows (which have finished, or been terminated)
automatically launch workflows when nodes within the repository are modifed (for example, to load digital assets)
