What are Deployments?

 

A DEPLOYMENT is an important term in the CMS. A DEPLOYMENT is a distinct combination of a platform and a language.

 

Examples of Deployments:

 

Android – English

iOS – English

GearVR – French

Oculus Rift – Japanese

 

The concept of DEPLOYMENTS is important in the CMS as all projects and collections are configured on a DEPLOYMENT basis meaning that any platform and language combination can be individually customized.

 

Example of a German Daydream DEPLOYMENT

 

Example of the English Android Deployment of the same Project

The following items can be customized on a Deployment basis:

 

1. Project Description: Meaning you can have a custom project or collection description for any Deployment (platform language combination)

2. Video Hosting: Meaning each Deployment can have custom video path associated with it

3. Geoblocking: Meaning each Deployment can have its own Geoblocking rules.

4. Publication Setting: Meaning each Deployment can have its own publication status (draft or published).

 

Deployments are a powerful way to configure your projects for any language territory.

 

The following items CANNOT be customized on a Deployment basis and can only be configured globally:

 

1. Subtitles: These can be customized only on a per-language basis

2. Binaural Sound Files: These can be customized only on a per-language basis

3. Branding: These can be customized only on a per-language basis

4. Project List Order: The same across all platforms and languages

5. Collection List Order: The same across all platforms and languages
