Deploy items

The Deploy panel makes it possible to copy items, with all their necessary data, and deploy them from one server to another. For example, if a Scene is deployed, all items referenced by the Scene (Images, Fonts, etc.), are also deployed.

The Deploy button is only available when at least one deploy server is configured in Viz Configuration. If you configure multiple servers, you can deploy items from one server to another. See the Database page of the Configuring Viz section of the Viz Engine Administrator Guide for more information.


This section contains the following topics:
