Hello Strapi community :wave:

Currently I am building a project with Strapi and I am loving it :tada: but I have the requirement of having users with the roles Admin and Authors. The Authors can only see content they create and can not publish anything before an admin review it.

Strapi seemed perfect to handle that until I found this issue:

If an Admin publishes a content the Author created the Author can then edit the content and after the Author saves the edition the content is immediately published breaking the idea that the Author can not publish content.

Is there a way to work around this and make sure that Authors can not edit publish content or that the content gets unpublished after the Author edit it ?

I tried the enterprise version but even there I did not find to fix this in Strapi admin panel. (Remove the update permission for the Authors forcing them to delete and create a new entry is not viable solution for me because of the content types with many fields)
