Object States

Object states are user-defined states that can be assigned to content items. They are contained in groups.

Object State group

If a state group contains any states, each content item is automatically assigned a state from this group.

You can assign states to content in the Back Office in the content item's Technical details tab.

Assigning an Object state to a content item

By default, Ibexa DXP contains one Object state group: Lock, with states Locked and Not locked.

**Lock** Object state

Object states can be used in conjunction with permissions, in particular with the Object State Limitation. Their specific use cases depend on your needs and the setup of your permission system.
