Publishing Pages : check-in file programmatically

One of the common scenarios when working with content migration is to handle the files checked out by other users. Following code is written to check-in all files check out by any users.

class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.WriteLine("Please enter site url");
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite(Console.ReadLine()))
                using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
                    PublishingPageCollection publishingPages 
= PublishingWeb.GetPublishingWeb(web).GetPublishingPages(); foreach (PublishingPage page in publishingPages) { SPFile file = page.ListItem.File; if (file.CheckedOutByUser != null) { Console.WriteLine("The page {0} is check out by
user {1}. Check-in in to take control."
file.Title, file.CheckedOutByUser); file.CheckIn("checked in by script",
SPCheckinType.MajorCheckIn); SPModerationInformation moderationInformation
= page.ListItem.ModerationInformation; if (moderationInformation.Status
== SPModerationStatusType.Pending) { file.Approve("Approved by script"); } if (moderationInformation.Status
== SPModerationStatusType.Draft) { file.Publish("Published using script"); file.Approve("Approved by script"); } } } } } } }
