Please see Question141

With a foswiki installation, when state changes occur with WorkflowPlugin the LASTVERSION_state metadata is set to "". This installation is an upgrade from a previously working TWiki installation.

Foswiki from debian apt-get, version 1.04. WorkflowPlugin version 23 Apr 2009, $Rev: 3652 (2009-04-23)

I have attached a series of images to show the process, starting with a fresh topic under workflow control:

  • Initial topic - not yet in the first state.:

  • Starting the workflow:
  • Im3.png:
  • Im4.png:

I have then edited the topic from the server, to add the revision number to the metadata, and as you can see from the images below, they now appear correctly. If I then go through the cycle again, they are overwritten with "", and it no longer works frown, sad smile

  • With metadata manually edited:

  • Starting the workflow cycle again:
  • Im7.png:

I have also attched the text file for the topic, captured after the last image above.

It was a missing parameter. Fixed.
