A version is defined within a documentation space and represents a software release, a special product variant (for example a software build for a special customer), or different languages of documentation. When you activate Scroll Versions in a space, you can create versions and make changes to pages that are targeted for a specific version. After all changes are made for the version, it can be published to the Wiki-Users.
Before you begin: Before adding versions, you must log in with Doc-Admin permissions, and version management must be activated.
To add a version:
- Open the space where you want to add a version.
- Click Browse > Scroll Content Management.
The Scroll Content Management Dashboard is displayed.
- Click Versions.
The Manage Versions screen is displayed.
- Click Add Version.
The Add Version screen is displayed.
- Enter a Version Name and an optional Description.
If you do not enter a description, the field is marked 'not set' when you publish the version.
- Select a release date or enter the date manually.
The release date is just for information. It does not automatically release the documentation.
- Select a preceding version in the Preceding Version drop-down.
The preceding version defines which version contributes content to the new version. If you select a preceding version, which is the preceding version of this version, Scroll Versions displays the message 'Something went wrong! Unexpected error (Details: Circular version definition detected.).'
- Click Save.
The version is added and the pages for the new version can now be edited.
