Set-PWDocumentState enhancement

Would it be possible to add an 'Admin Override' option to the 'Set-PWDocumentState' command in PW PowerShell?. This option should only be useable by members of the Administrator group or by using a '-AdminOverride' option

When this function is used on an object managed under the Workflow Rules Engine (WRE) it returns a 58268 error ("Manual change state not allowed. Please use Workflow customization rules to change document state")

Access to this additional option is required for system Administrators to fix problems with WRE where on occasion the rule action times-out and the file is left in the wrong state. This can be caused by a number of things such as large/corrupt files or even a slow network connection.

I know this can be achieved by editing the database entries but I need a managed function that can be configured to achieve the result in a consistent and controlled manner.

  • I've started to get the same issue on code that previously worked. I can do it in PWise thru WRE with the same account.


    WARNING: Failed to change state to 'Shared' for ..... Error: 58268


    Get-PWDocumentsBySearch -FileName ($FileName + ".nwd") -FolderPath $PWloc -JustThisFolder | Set-PWDocumentState -State "Shared" -SkipIntermediateStates -IgnoreStatus

    Only real difference recently is we upgraded PWDI to 3.299

    Installed the most recent PW_DAB with no improvement.

    Any help appreciated.
