Comala Workflow - Allow approval by group but exclude the @creator@

Chris Gibson Apr 17, 2018

We have setup Comala workflow for our approval process, but have noticed that the creator of the page can complete the peer review and if they are part of the mangers group they can complete that sign off too. So we changed our config to the below.  Spectically adding 



however even though this is set as our default approval, its still allowing the creator to approve.  Can anyone see what we've done wrong?


{workflow:name=Peer and Manager Approval }


Peer and Manager Approval Workflow


{workflowparameter:PRs|description=Peer Reviewers group|type=group}


{workflowparameter} {workflowparameter:Managers|description=Management Approvers group|type=group}




{state} {state:Awaiting_Peer_Review|approved=Awaiting_Manager_Approval|rejected=Draft|updated=Draft} {approval:PR|group=@PRs@|exclude=@created@} {state} {state:Awaiting_Manager_Approval|approved=Published|rejected=Draft|updated=Draft}     {approval:Manager|group=@Managers@|exclude=@created@}

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the confusion.

To exclude the creator from being assigned to approvals, you want to use "exclude=@creator@" instead.
