Resources can have different statuses according to their publication or activation status.
There are two columns dedicated to displaying these statuses in the Custom resources screen.
- Draft : the resource has just been created or re-drafted. To create the database tables as well as the corresponding APIs the resource must be republished. If a resource is being re-drafted, it is automatically rendered inactive following the publication step.
- Pending re-draft : the resource was re-drafted. The re-draft process will occur during the next publication. Re-drafting is irreversible. Several warning messages warn the user of this fact both when re-drafting, then when preparing to publish.For more on re-drafting, see Deleting a resource .The Cancel re-draft option is available when the resource that you want to re-draft still contains links through other resources with the "Published" status. This option allows you to revert the "re-draft" process. The custom resources will then go back to their original statuses.
- Published : the resource has been published. If the resource is modified after the last modified date, then a message appears asking the user to republish in order to take into account the latest modifications.
The Do not publish latest modifications field prevents modifications from being taken into account during future publications.
This field can be configured in the custom resource definition.
