Create a New Release

A Release contains a set of entries and assets that you want to deploy (publish/unpublish) to a particular environment at once.

Note: When working within specific branches, releases created will be specific to that particular branch. For example, if you create a release within the development branch, you will be able to add items to this release that are only within the development branch. Refer to our Branch-specific Modules document for more information.

To create a release, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack, and click on the “Releases” icon located on the left navigation panel. You can also use the shortcut key “alt + R” for Windows OS users, and “option + R” for Mac OS users to access Releases.
  2. You can either click on the + New Release button located at the top-left side of the page.
  3. In the Create a New Release box, provide a suitable Name and Description for the release.create_a_new_release_1_no_highlight.png
  4. After entering the details, click on Save.

Now, you can add item(s) to the release and deploy it to an environment.
