    webcenter announcement service

      Hi There,

      I have created a custom webcenter portal with announcement service (Announcement Taskflow), want to use some workflow to get approved before new Announcement published to live.

      May you please let me know if there any solution to this issue, as I am not using spaces as I am using WebCenter Custom portal ?

      Awaiting for your kind reply.

          OOTB Announcements do not support workflows. This is not a question of using Spaces vs. WebCenter Portal app, but mainly, because Announcements do not support "states".

          Even if you decide to customize it, it might be quite challenging. What you could try is:
          - there is a parameter Make Active on Specific Date - you'd could assign a date in a far future and then change it in a workflow to the date of approval
          - this chapter http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/webcenter.1111/e10148/jpsdg_announce.htm#CACIFEDB mentions security for announcements - maybe you could somehow use it

          I'd rather go a worklist as described in http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/webcenter.1111/e10149/content_workflow.htm#WCSUG8483

          If you really insist on Announcements, you could (auto-)create an Announcement (via calling the appropriate service) in the end of a successful worklist workflow.
