We have a requirement to withhold few categories from publishing even if products in the categories are in approved status. I was planning to add a boolean in category, so that product authors can withhold the product from publishing.
The only way i found in wiki is extending CategoryCatalogVersionSyncJob item and extending the Jalo class as mentioned in forum post below.
Is extending the Jalo class is the only option? I am using Hybris 5.1.1.
