Content library

Describes how to work with the content library in Optimizely Configured Commerce.

ISC_ContentAdmins, ISC_ContentEditors and ISC_ContentApprovers can use the Content section of the Library menu to manage, preview, and approve content revisions. Content edits may occur either in the Content Management System (CMS) or in the Admin Console.

The Content Library is located in the Admin Console > Library > Content. ISC_ContentAdmin users can modify, preview, and publish content updates in the Content section. ISC_ContentEditors can modify content in the CMS or Admin Console, then preview the revision. ISC_ContentApprovers can preview revisions, then publish them.

By switching the Only Show Content Waiting to be Published toggle to YES, ISC_ContentApprovers can view a list of only the revisions requiring approval.

Revisions also may be filtered by Content Type, such as Products.

Select edit next to a revision to edit the revision, preview it, or approve it based on assigned user role.
