Preview Publisher | DAM Auto Replication workflow | On Modification Publisher Agent property



Hi all,

How to restrict replication (on content updates or DAM updates) only to PREVIEW PUBLISHER ?

We are trying to setup separate preview publisher (apart from normal publishers which is serving end user traffic).

This preview publisher will only be used by AUTHORING TEAM to preview their content.

Any update (content update or DAM updates) should automatically replicate from AUTHOR to PREVIEW PUBLISHER (so that PREVIEW PUBLISHER is always in sync with AUTHOR).

In Publisher Agent Screen we have CHECKBOX called "On Modification" - If you select this - then any content update from AUTHOR will get replicated to PREVIEW PUBLISHER.


1) "On Modification" option does not work for DAM images - So we will have to write custom auto replication workflow. We can write this workflow and add in Workflow Launcher - But this will replicate DAM Image to all the publisher and not just PREVIEW PUBLISHER. Is there any way to achieve this without writing custom logic ?

2) "On Modification" option replicates all the updates from AUTHOR to PREVIEW like any changes made to /etc/replication node also gets AUTO REPLICATED to PUBLISHER - Is there any way to specify what paths we want to replicate to PREVIEW PUBLISH. Trying to avoid any custom coding if required.

Thanks for help.
