I have Sitecore 8.2, have the template for my item assigned to our custom workflow, I have all
validation rules set to Required for the fields in question.
Yet I can move the item through the workflow without saving it (the validation rules prevent me from saving without filling these fields in), and finally can actually publish the item.
What am I missing? Shouldn't I be prevented from doing this if Required is added as a Workflow validation rule for a field that is never filled in?
