Before using variants for software releases - On Premises 6.4

Object Variants

This section looks at some of the planning you should consider before moving forward with your variant implementation.

  • Make sure you have a basic understanding of working with Author-it object variants before creating your plan for working with software release variants.
  • Have a plan defined for publishing your content, including some "what if" rules. These define what should happen if content for the release you are publishing does not exist. For example, is it possible to use an alternative?
  • Plan the fall-back path and structure used by your software variant values. Use a small sample book to test your variant structure and implementation plan.
