Re: What happened to workflow in Odoo 9 ?

Anthony,

Please don't remove the workflow engine. It is extremely useful in many circumstances (such as complex approval schemes in large companies).

On the contrary, please improve it! It just lacks a small patch to propagate context everywhere.
eg https://github.com/acsone/odoo/commit/6a9e97b91096ceb708ec94685e6410e88954c6ef
And a migration to new api to make it fully extensible.

Best regards,

-sbi

Remaining workflow in v9 are:

account_invoice_workflow.xml
account_budget_workflow.xml
hr_holidays_workflow.xml
hr_payroll_workflow.xml
hr_timesheet_workflow.xml
marketing_campaign_workflow.xml
mrp_workflow.xml
mrp_operations_workflow.xml
mrp_repair_workflow.xml
point_of_sale_workflow.xml
purchase_requisition_workflow.xml

All of them are trivial they advance state in a linear fashion from one step 
to the next. So if we remove them we might remove the workflow engine (not 
decided yet). There are no plan to move workflow from community to enterprise 
it will either stay in community or be fully removed.
