Publish-Set trigger on Publish

We have a workflow Publish-Set trigger that we would like to fire whenever content gets published, even when the user clicks directly on the Publish tab (i.e. outside workflow).

Can we force a Publish-Set trigger upon Publish, even when bypassing workflow?

    Hi Nelson,

    Unfortunately there is no way to tie a workflow into the Publish action specifically. Workflows can only be triggered for the actions: Create, Edit, Copy, Delete.

    You could potentially create your own Publish Trigger (note: not to be confused with a workflow publish trigger) to do something like you mentioned above. The only issue with that is that Publish Triggers execute for all assets in the system (which I'm not sure you want).

    Let me know if you have further questions.
