Acoustic Content provides you with a range of tools to help you manage the lifecycle of an item. These tools help you publish your changes at the right time and coordinate your changes with updates from other users.
As an item moves through its lifecycle, it's important that you know how to track your item's progress.
The status of an item indicates the current stage of an item's lifecycle.
- You begin by creating a draft item. A draft status means that your content or asset is ready to be composed or edited. While in draft, you can send your item out for review and approval.
- When an item is ready to go live, you publish it. A published status means that your content or asset is published and available on the content delivery network.
You can publish individual content items and assets, or bulk publish content or assets from the content section of your hub. Plus, you can publish content that is viewed in the site composer's content editor when you create websites. Your application or website developer can then access and retrieve your published content or asset. Go to Accessing published content for details.
You can't unpublish an item. Instead, create a draft of the published content and manually undo your recent changes. Then, click Publish to update your live content.
- When an item is no longer required, you can retire it. Retired means that your content is no longer required. Changing the status of an item to retired doesn't unpublish it. To unpublish an item, you must delete it.
