This will be a short post about why the method above is tricky. As its name says ExecuteWorkflowCommandIfAvailable, but what “available” means in this context?Continue reading “What WorkflowUtility.ExecuteWorkflowCommandIfAvailable does?”
This feature appeared in Sitecore 8.2, which is changing the workflow state value for datasource items together with the context page item (only in Experience Editor). Here is a great summary article related to these improvements.

<command name="webedit:workflowwithdatasourceitems" type="Sitecore.ExperienceEditor.WebEdit.Commands.WorkflowWithDatasourceItems, Sitecore.ExperienceEditor" />
