Restricting Approver to Revert Workflow

Hi All!

 

We had gotten an ad hoc request to give certain access and restrictions to Preparer Users and Approver Users. Where the Preparer can complete workflow and revert workflow and the Approver can only certify in the Workflow profile. We have been able to successfully achieve restriction on completing workflow for the Approver but not able to restrict them from stopping the Revert workflow. Even after placing conditions to stop the revert workflow the certify is also getting restricted for the approver.
below is the code without any restrictions for Revert workflow for now.  if anyone has resolution for this it will be greatly appreciated.

Hey Upkar,

I can't help but thinking, however, that this should be achieved with a clean separation of duties, i.e. having a WF profile that is just "Certify" and is only accessible to Approvers, but anyway...

You didn't post where you're triggering your check, but the following technique might work. Instead of working on accessing the Certify step, you let them see the screen but then don't allow them to change state with a DataQualityEventHandler.

 

Case Is = BREventOperationType.DataQuality.Certify.StartSetCertifyState
     If si.UserName.XFEqualsIgnoreCase("admin") Then       ' replace this with your checks
          Dim info As CertifyProcessInfo = args.inputs(0)  ' cast input object
          ' SignOffState is the state we're moving towards, in this case we're certifying
          If info.SignOffState.Equals(CertSignOffStates.ProfileCertified) Then 
              Throw New XFUserMsgException(si, "General", "general param1", "Message")
          End If
     end if

 

Otherwise, the general technique in a Workflow Handler relies on looking up the status of tasks or the overall status of the step. You can explore what is available by casting the object and looking at its properties.

Dim wfinfo As WorkflowInfo = args.inputs(0)
' overall status (i.e. "green bar")
brapi.ErrorLog.LogMessage(si, wfinfo.GetOverallStatus().ToString)
' individual step status, you can have multiple ones e.g. Load and Process
brapi.ErrorLog.LogMessage(si, wfinfo.CurrentStep.Status.ToString)

Hi Jack! 

Thank you for your inputs! 
My Team and I were able to get a breakthrough (I hope), we created event handlers for Forms and Workflow. for now, it's working out as we want it, need to further test it. Below is the code we have in place, please let us know what you think and if we can improve on it.
