Configure the Project Workflow - Bloomreach Experience - Open Source CMS

This article covers a Hippo CMS version 13. There's an updated version available that covers our most recent release.


Configure the Project Workflow

This Bloomreach Experience Manager feature requires a standard or premium license. Please contact Bloomreach for more information.



Configure the workflow for the the Projects feature.


The Workflow Process Management add-on adds the Projects feature to Bloomreach Experience Manager which includes a project workflow. At this point, there are only two configuration parameters for the project workflow.

Configure Approval Policies

Node: /hippowpm:hippowpm/hippowpm:approvalpolicies/dx-projects

Property Type Default Value Description
hippowpm:approvalpolicy Long 2 The number of approvals required before a request is accepted.


Boolean true Show the document name to users that do not have permission to read the document

Prevent Changes in Core

Node: /hst:[projectname]/hst:configurations/[channelname]

Property Type Default Value Description
hst:locked Boolean false Setting hst:locked to true on a channel prevents CMS users from being able to make changes directly to the core of that channel and forces them to use the Projects workflow.
Due to a UI bug, the menu editor in a locked core channel is still accessible. However, changes made in the menu editor cannot be saved in a locked core.
Locking core only applies to channel configuration, not to content.
