Hi there,

Is it possible to automatically set up an approval, complete with the approver, when an 'Contributor' attribute is selected?

For example, if I have n 'Approver' attribute with Contributor based presentation, and i select Amy Whitehouse from that attribute. I would like an automatic approval to be set up, with the approver Amy Whitehouse automaically selected.

Is this possible?

As far as I can tell, the only way this could be implemented today is as Advisor or Participant plug-in.

See: for an example how to create a Participant (follow up action). and for a precondition. is where I blog my experience with the API's, shows an example for creating an approval with approver. The example is for a client, not a server extension, however the code is very similar. You only have to replace the client libraries by the similar services.
