Publish document doesn't work - workflow + versioning

Tomasz Czado asked on April 19, 2018 08:57

I'm trying to create/update document and then publish it. All works fine in CMS but when I tried to get that document on live site, I still see old version.

The page type is CMS.File and file returned while opening this page on live site is different what I can see in CMS.

I tried with this code:

var workflowManager = WorkflowManager.GetInstance(tree);
        var settingsWorkflow = workflowManager.GetNodeWorkflow(node);
        if (null != settingsWorkflow)
            // node.Update();
            node.Publish(string.Format("Automatically published {0} page.", node.DocumentName));

Documents are published but latest changes are not available on live site.

I also tried with this code:

And nothing seems to work.

// Create a new Version manager instance
var manager = VersionManager.GetInstance(tree);

// Check out the document
if (!node.IsCheckedOut)

// Save the changes
DocumentHelper.UpdateDocument(node, tree);

// Check in the document
if (node.IsCheckedOut)
    manager.CheckIn(node, null, null);

var workflowManager = WorkflowManager.GetInstance(tree);
var workflow = workflowManager.GetNodeWorkflow(node);

// apply latest version

// Check if the document uses workflow
if (workflow != null)
    // Publish the document
    workflowManager.PublishDocument(node, string.Format("Automatically published {0} page.", node.DocumentName));
