About Releases

You can define a “Release” as a set of entries and assets that needs to be deployed (published or unpublished) all at once to a particular environment.

Note: When working within specific branches, releases created will be specific to that particular branch. Refer to our Branch-specific Modules document for more information.

If you are using a CMS to manage and publish your content, you know that publishing large amounts of time-sensitive content (for example, when there’s a product launch, press release, or sales promotion) is a daunting task. You have to publish multiple entries/assets and their publishing status, and, in most cases, you have to find and keep track of the content pieces one by one. This is a time-consuming process and is prone to errors.

Releases dramatically simplify this task for you. All you need to do is simply pin all the required entries and assets to a “Release.” When you deploy this Release, all the pinned items are published/unpublished at the same time to whatever environment you choose.

Note: To use Releases with web framework, you will need contentstack-express version 3.1.9 or above.
