A ‘Release’ is a set of entries and assets that needs to be deployed (published or unpublished) all at once to a particular environment.
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 simplifies this task for you. You 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 When you deploy this Release, all the pinned items are published/unpublished at the same time to whatever environment you choose.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.
