If you already created a Release, you’re probably wondering how to assign it to a Topic. By default, a Topic displays HEAD (the latest saved) revision of your Topic within a Site.

In this article, we’ll show how to assign a named Release to a Topic instead.

Assigning a release to a topic

You'll need at least one named Release available. See how to create a release.

To assign the release to a topic:

  1. Go to Sites and choose a Site you want to edit.

  1. In the Topics tab, edit the Topic you want to assign a Release to.

  1. Use the drop-down menu to select a Release.

  1. (A) Update the Topic and (B) save and publish changes.


Why would you change the release for a topic?

If you're using Releases to manage updates, then you can assign a named Release instead of HEAD. This way, you can edit and make changes safely while a stable version of your content is deployed. Find out more about version control.
