Description

For one of our customers with a big TYPO3 we needed a feature called 4-eyes principe. Some use cases:

  1. User A edits something in workspace.
  2. User A sends the change to next stage
  3. User A directly publish his change to live -> This is wrong, because maybe he had a mistake and noone else checked the change

Correct would be:

  1. User A edits something in workspace
  2. User A sends the change to next stage
  3. User B checks the change and publishs it

Also possible and correct:

  1. User A edits something in workspace
  2. User A sends the change to next stage
  3. User B checks it and changes something in the element
  4. User B tries to publish the element and will get an error, because he edited the element at the latter
  5. User A can check the change from User A and publish the change

We developed this feature configurable, so it is possible to activate 4-eyes princip in extEMConf, otherwise everything works like before. In my opinion it would also be nice to have this enable-checkbox in workspace config instead of extEMconf. But this needs to be discussed by the workspace team.

I attached the modified t3x of the workspaces extension with a tested solution. I know that it is not nice to just attach the t3x and do not create patches. I am very sorry but I have no time this week to create these patches, but I will do this later.

Nevertheless some feedback if you like this feature in general would be nice.

Greets,

Sonja

Thank you for your great work.
We have realized 30 workspaces in our installation. The work with workspaces brings many benefits for us.

But our editors work in their own authority. A workspace has one until 5 owners. One owner can publish independently. He needn’t to inform the other owners. So it is good, that the new 4-eye feature is only configurable.

hi sonja,

this sounds awesome. we would need something a bit different which involves 3 persons and eveything in 1 workspace: 3 people need to give their ok. final publishing can only happen if those 3 are fine.

is there anything I can help on, maybe at t3board/t3dd? would be awesome

Hello, we also need the "4 eyes principe for publishing elements"-feature for one of our projects. How is the current status? How can we give support for adding the last 10% to complete the feature?
Would be happy for any feedback. Thanks in advance.
