About Publish Rules
Publish Rules are conditions that you define for your content publishing. It allows you to govern whether entries can be published with or without someone’s approval or only when the content is at a particular stage.
Note: You can assign publishing rules to content types present in all or specific branches of your stack. Changes can be made and accessed throughout all the branches. Refer to our Global Modules document for more information.
For example, you can define a publishing rule that every entry first needs to be approved by John Smith. Unless John Smith approves it, the entry cannot be published.
Alternatively, if you define that the stage should be Complete to be published, the entry will not be published unless the Complete stage is reached.
