Live copy page deletion

ben_hp 12-03-2020

I’d like some clarification on the best way to manage live copy page deletion.

 

language-master

  /en

    /page1

    /page2

    /page3

And I have a live copy managed by a blueprint that’s simply and exact copy

us

  /en

    /page1

    /page2

    /page3

 

First question, if I delete a page in master:

 

language-master

  /en

     /page1

     /page3

 

That page still exists in the live copy

 

us

  /en

     /page1

     /page2

     /page3

 

Is there any way to “rollout” that deletion to live copies?  I’ve tried syncing the parent page and other rollout method that sound like they would help but nothing does.

 

Second, if I delete a page from a live copy:

 

us

  /en

    /page1

    /page3

 

That live copy is unavailable for me to rollout a new language-master/en/page2.  The option us/en simply isn’t there when I try and roll out.  Is there any way for me to get a live copy to “forget” that it once had that page so it will accept the rollout again?

You can use the detach option from the page properties, which permanently removes the live relationship between a live copy and its source/blueprint page. All MSM-relevant properties are removed from the live copy and the live copy pages become a standalone copy. Once this is done, you can either remove the BP or Livecopy.

 

If you want to temporarily remove the relationship, you can use the "suspend" option.
