Publish Product Data

When working on product data in the catalog view, data is stored in the "staging database" and is not yet available to customers/receivers. In PDM there are two ways to publish data to the "receiver database":
  1. Publishing through a brand's Publish Data tab 
  2. Publishing through the Catalog
Once data is published to the receiver database it can be sent through channels and accessed by customers/receivers.

Publish through Publish Data

  1. Select a Brand and click Publish Data.
  2. The number to the right is a count of new products or product updates ready to be published.
  3. Click Publish all items of brand to publish the entire list of products displayed.
  4. If you want to publish specific product data, select the appropriate check-boxes and click Publish items.

Publish through Catalog

  1. Select a Brand and select one or more product(s) in the catalog view.
  2. Click the Actions menu and choose Publish, the product(s) will be copied from the staging database to the receiver database.

      3. In the catalog view, a product's publication status is indicated by color coded "cloud" icons:
  1. Orange Cloud indicates the product or updates are not yet published to the receiver database
  2. Grey Cloud indicates the product has been temporarily excluded from publication to the receiver database (this is usually done to recently created parts, or parts that are out of date)
  3. Green Cloud indicates the latest version of the product data is published in the receiver database

Users can also change the Publication Status of product data in the staging database
