Branch-specific Modules

These modules are specific to a branch. When you fork out a branch out of the main branch, you’ll get all the contents of the main branch within this child branch. But once you start making changes within these modules of the child branch, it will reflect only within that particular branch.

Content Types

When working within specific branches, content types added or updated will be specific to that particular branch.

For example, if you create a new sample content type within the development branch, you will be able to retrieve or access this sample content type only within the development branch.

Global Fields

Global fields added or updated will be specific to a particular branch.

For example, if you create a SEO global field within the development branch, you will be able to use or access this global field only within the development branch.

Entries

You can create, update, delete and refer entries only within specific branches of your stack.

For example, if you create an entry within the blog content type of the development branch, you will be able to use or access this entry only within the development branch.

Assets

You can add or update assets only within specific branches of your stack. The assets added within any other branch other than the main branch, will contain the branch name in the URL.

For example, the URL for the assets added in the development branch will be as follows: https://images.contentstack.com/v3/assets/blt0000000/blt9c00000000/6748939030339888/AI.jpg?branch=development

For all assets added to the main branch, the URL will be as follows: https://images.contentstack.com/v3/assets/blt0000000/blt9c00000000/6748939030339888/AI.jpg
