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:
- Go to your stack, click on the RELEASE tab on the header. This opens the Releases page where you can see a list of all the existing Releases.
- Hover over the release you want to clone, click on the “More Options” icon (three vertical dots) that appears at the extreme right end, and select Clone.
- In the Clone Release window, provide a suitable Name (mandatory) and Description (optional) for the Release, and click Save.
To clone a release via API, refer to the Clone a Release API request.
