Variants for Software Releases

Open a book with filter criteria already selected and the content using that criteria is displayed.

For example, assign the "current release" criteria value to the book. When you move to the next release just update the value assigned to the book.

To assign variant criteria to a book object:

  1. Select the book object in the Library Explorer's object list.
  2. Right-click and select Variant > Convert to Variant

    Important: Do not make the book a child variant of any other book while you are using this option, you only need to assign the criteria.

  3. Select the filtering criteria you want to assign to the book.
  4. Save your changes.

When you are ready to use the book to display the content for the next release, just update the value assigned to the book object.

To change the variant criteria value assigned to the book object:

  1. Select the book object in the Library Explorer's object list.
  2. Right-click and select Variant > Edit Variant.
  3. Select the new filtering criteria for the book.
  4. Save your changes.
