I am building a workflow that will search through all revisions and check the status. The idea is that at no point will there ever be two released revisions for an item. Currently, I have it built that it only checks previous revisions. For example,
Rev A - Hold
Rev B - Hold
Rev C - Hold
Rev D - Released
Lets say I want to release rev C because rev D is not performing as expected. When I run my workflow on rev C, the workflow checks all later revisions. So, rev B is Hold and rev A is Hold therefor the workflow progresses and rev C is released. But, rev D is also released and I now have two released revisions.
How can I make it so that the workflow will search the entire structure for revision statuses? Or, has anyone performed this action/something similar before?
Ideally, in my scenerio above an error would occur prior to release.
We are just going to work around this. Having a do task for the operators to double check for additional released items. To check all previous revisions, use a validate task. -previous_status:SP5_Hold -previous_check:all -stop:Y -current_check:all
