    Module Implementation Details
    Supports : Sitecore 7.0 through Sitecore 8.0 Update 5

    The gist of the module relies on getting the list of data source items from the item presentation details, my colleague Brent Svac who co developed this module with me has written a series of blog post on how to get a list of data source items from a item.

    How to Programmatically Get Datasource Items of a Sitecore Item

    Programmatically Get Personalization Datasource Items of a Sitecore Item

    Programmatically Get Multi Variate Test Datasource Items of a Sitecore Item


    As you can see from the above blog posts that we not only took  the datasource items present on the item, but also took into account the personalized data source and Multi variate test data sources into account.

    Once we have the list of data source items , then all we need is to tap into the getPageEditorNotifications pipeline to output the required notifications in the experience editor

    For the content editor notifications, we need to tap into the getContentEditorWarnings pipeline to output the required notifications in the content editor

    One interesting thing about the module that only contains 3 files and can be easily maintained

    Include Config File : Website\App_Config\Include\Z_EditorDataSourceWorkflowNotifications.config

    DLL : Website\bin\HI.Shared.DataSourceWorkflowModule.dll

    Sitecore Item : /sitecore/system/Settings/Validation Rules/Item Rules/Item/Components in Final Workflow State
