Exclusion rule logic in a publishing profile

Publish

On Premises

In the following scenario two exclusion rules have been created - one that will exclude topics in the Draft release state from being published (regardless of where they are stored), and a separate rule that will exclude topics located in the X1000 folder from being published.

The ACME Research Specification book for updates to products, includes topics located in the X1000 and X2001 folders that are currently in several release states.

Exclusion Rule Example

The content that will be included in the published book is dictated by the criteria logic applied to the exclusion rules.

  • Choosing ALL, the more restrictive of the two options, excludes those topics that are located in the X1000 folder that are currently in the Draft release state.
  • Choosing ANY excludes all topics that are in the Draft release state and all topics located in the X1000 folder.

AND OR Logic

You can also create rules with multiple criteria. For example, you could exclude topics that are in the Draft release state so long as they are also in the X1000 folder. Any topics that don't meet both criteria will be published.
