Overview

A product version specifies details of Product in a specific published version. It contains information about product descriptions, items, configurations, and connections at the moment of creation. Namely, your configured versioned attributes will be applicable only to your specified product version.

The following provide instructions on how to configure a new version for your product and how to manage your created product versions.

Product Version Creation

Please take into consideration the following points before creating product version:

  • Product category must be selected. 
  • Product main media file must be uploaded.
  • It is not possible to edit or remove existing Product Items, though it is possible to add new items and transfer existing ones to the End of Sale state.

In order to create a new product version you need to follow the Products module. Once Product is selected and you are in the Product details, use left menu Versions screen and the right top Fork Master button to proceed.

Note

You don’t need specify versioning for the Product. Version is auto-incremented after each new fork.
You may fork only master version. Different version branches are not available.

Fork Master

Fork Master version screen shown below. Good changelog is very important for the customer experience. A changelog should contain a curated, chronologically ordered list of notable changes for each version of a product.

Visibility: Public or Private.

Public versions will immediately be visible to Distributors that have access to this Product as well as publicly in case your product is listed in the CloudBlue Catalog.

Click Inspect to see attributes of that specific created product version.
