Publish your Launch Property

Now that you have implemented some key solutions of the Adobe Experience Cloud in your Development environment, it's time to learn the publishing workflow.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:
  1. Publish a Development library to the Staging environment
  2. Map a Staging library to your production website using the Debugger
  3. Publish a Staging library to the Production environment

Publish to Staging

Now that you have created and validated your library in the Development environment, it is time to publish it to Staging.
  1. Go to the Publishing page
  2. Open the dropdown next to your library and select Submit for Approval
  3. Click the Submit button in the dialog:
  4. Your library will now appear in the Submitted column in an unbuilt state:
  5. Open the dropdown and select Build for Staging :
  6. Once the green-dot icon appears, the library can be previewed in the Staging environment.
In a real-life scenario, the next step in the process would typically be to have your QA team validate the changes in the Staging library. They can do this using the Debugger.
To Validate the Changes in the Staging Library
  1. In your Launch property, open the Environments page
  2. In the Staging row, click the Install icon to open the modal
  3. Click the Copy icon to copy the embed code to your clipboard
  4. Click Close to close the modal
  5. Open the We.Retail demo site in your Chrome browser
  6. Open the Experience Cloud Debugger extension by clicking the icon
  7. Go to the Tools Tab
  8. Click Adobe Launch > Dynamically Insert Launch > Embed Code button to open the text input field (it might currently have the URL of your Development embed code):
  9. Paste the Staging embed code that is in your clipboard
  10. Click the disk icon to save
  11. Reload and check the Summary tab of the Debugger. Under the Launch section, you should now see your Staging Property is implemented, showing your property name (I.e. "Launch Tutorial" or whatever you named your property)!
In real-life, once your QA team has signed off by reviewing the changes in the Staging environment it is time to publish to production.

Publish to Production

  1. Go to the Publishing page
  2. From the dropdown, click Approve for Publishing :
  3. Click the Approve button in the dialog box:
  4. The library will now appear in the Approved column in the unbuilt state (yellow dot):
  5. Open the dropdown and select **Build and Publish to Production :
  6. Click the Publish in the dialog box:
  7. The library will now appear in the Published column:
That’s it! You've completed the tutorial and published your first property in Launch!
