Publishing

Publishing brings together many parts of Cloud CMS to enable you to manage the lifecycle of your Content. Our Publishing is very configurable to meet your diverse needs. To help get you started we have a simple example showing a Publish and Unpublish mechanism between an Authoring Project and a Live project.

When Publishing is enabled in a Project you get:

Workflow

With Publishing enabled there are 2 simple workflows added to your Project: simple publish and simple unpublish. The simple workflow are meant as a starting point and may meet your needs. If you have more complex requirements you can also define your own workflow.

Lifecycle States

Cloud CMS contains content Lifecycle States for use during the Publishing process of a content, eg., draft, live, archived.

Preview Servers

A typical requirement in a CMS is to be able to preview your content in your site or application. We provide a mechanism to point your site or application at any branch or project thus enabling you to preview content throughout the publishing lifecyle - eg authoring, production.

Deployment

Cloud CMS Deployment lets you publish content from a source Cloud CMS project branch to one or more destination Deployment Endpoints. These Deployment Endpoints may include Amazon S3 buckets, FTP servers, file system locations and Cloud CMS branches on the same cluster or running in a cluster located in another data center somewhere else in the world.

Publications

Once you Add a Publication to the Project, the content from the Selected Branch will be published/unpublished to/from the Selected Deployment Target and its Lifecycle State will change.
