    goal: deny editors to publish pages

    1. Created a Editors role and added a user to it
    2. Under Pages, All pages, permissions I selected Editors role and gave it View, create, and Modify permission only. Rest are all unchecked.
    3. Logged in as the user of editor role and created a new page.
    4. On the next screen it asked to select a template. Becasue I didn't give modify layout I can't choose any templates which is fine.
    5. On top I can see Publish, preview and cancel changes.

    My questions.
    1. When I didn't give approve or publish permissions, why am I seeing "publish" buttom on top?
    2. There is no other choice so I pressed Publish button. Surprisingly I can see the page in menu section.  Does this mean the permissions are not working.

    Please let me know asap. I installed the latest version standard edition 3.6 SP2

    I think I got it working but not sure yet by changing allowPageWorkflow="true"

    <add connectionStringName="DefaultConnection" allowPageHistory="true"
              allowPageWorkflow="true" cachingProviderName="ASPNET" name="Sitefinity"
              type="Telerik.Cms.Data.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Cms.Data" />

    am I right?

    Hi Rabindra,

    You are right. The workflow is disabled by default. Once you enable it you can set different permissions for your roles.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    All the best,
