Clone a Release

Since deployed Releases are “locked” (i.e., you cannot make any changes to Release items), the only way to reuse existing deployed Releases are to clone them.

Cloning a Release means creating a copy of an existing Release along with all the items within it. After cloning a Release, you can make the necessary changes to its items, and then use the updated Release.

To clone a Release, login to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack, click on the “Releases” icon on the left navigation panel. This opens the Releases page where you can see a list of all the existing Releases. You can also use the shortcut key “alt + R” for Windows OS users, and “option + R” for Mac OS users to access Releases.
  2. Hover over the release you want to clone, click on the “Clone” icon that appears on the floating modal.clone_a_release_1_highlighted.png
  3. In the Clone Release window, provide a suitable Name (mandatory) and Description (optional) for the Release, and click Save.
