You can publish content items only when their content meets the criteria defined by content type. This means that elements with limitations must have correct values and required elements must be filled in.

See how to move content items through their workflow inside the app.

To publish a content item:

  1. From the app menu, choose Content & Assets.
  2. Click a content item to open it for publishing.
  3. On the Details tab, click the current workflow step.
  4. Select Publish.
  5. Click Publish at the bottom of the side panel.

Note: If the Publish option is not available, this means that the current workflow step cannot transition to Publish based on your project's workflow setup. The item must first go through all the necessary steps, for example, Review and Approval. You can customize your content workflow according to your specific needs.

The system changes the workflow step of the given content item to Published and the content item becomes publicly available.

If the content item is composed of the content items linked within the Linked items elements or the Rich text element, these items aren't published and remain in their own workflow steps. This does not apply to components, as they are a natural part of the Rich text element and get published together with the parent item.

To publish two or more content items at once:

  1. From the app menu, choose Content & Assets.
  2. Select the content items you want to publish.
  3. Click More actions (⋮).
  4. Select the Publish action.
  5. Click Publish at the bottom of the side panel.

Note: Content types, sitemap locations, and taxonomy groups are not affected by publishing – they are always published. When you modify content types, sitemap, or taxonomy groups used by published content items, the changes will appear immediately.
