Publish Assets

When you publish assets, you can select the channels used for publishing and see immediately if the asset adheres to the approval and localization policies that were set for that channel.

Assets can be pretargeted to a particular channel, making it easy for you to publish them using that channel, or you can select an alternative channel to use for the asset.

If you want to publish a translated content item, make sure the translated version has been set as translated before trying to publish it. Also be aware of the approval policies for the repository where you’re working. Some assets do not need to be approved before publishing, and some must be approved.

To publish an asset:

  1. Select the assets you want to publish.

  2. Click Publish.

    Oracle Content and Experience compares the assets to the approval and localization policies of the targeted channel. The validation results list the status of the selected assets, any associated translations, and any dependent assets. You can filter the results by channel or by status.

  3. If you need to select a different channel click Selected, select one or more channels, and then click Validate.

  4. To remove an asset from publishing, click the X next to the asset.

  5. When all assets show a status of "Ready", click Publish to publish the assets.

Publishing Tips

Here are some things to keep in mind about publishing assets:

  • Some channels may require assets to be approved before they can be published.

  • If you’re publishing a content item and it’s been translated, the version you’re publishing must be set as translated before it can be published. Select the translated version, and click Set as Translated to show that the version has been approved.

  • If you select multiple assets to publish, all the channels the assets are targeted to will be shown. For example, if you have two assets that are targeted for publishing to Channel A and one asset targeted to Channel B, then "Channel A (2)" and "Channel B (1)" appears in the Channel list, indicating the number of assets targeted to each channel.

  • You can't publish assets until they have been validated against the policies of the channels to which they'll be published. After validating, you see results showing you which assets follow the policies and which do not.
