Configuring Site Template Propagation

Available for Liferay 7.4 U23+ and GA23+

With Site Templates, you can configure the trigger for automatic propagation. By default, Liferay triggers propagation for each Site individually when it is first visited by a user, after changes are made. However, you can configure your system to also trigger propagation to connected Sites simultaneously whenever automatic propagation is enabled for the template.

Important

Automatic propagation can be resource intensive, depending the scope of changes made to a template.

To configure Site Template propagation, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Global Menu (Global Menu), go to the Control Panel tab, and click System Settings.

  2. Go to Infrastructure settings and click Site Templates in the side menu.

  3. Check Trigger Propagation.

    If unchecked, changes are propagated to sites individually when they’re first visited by a user.

    If checked, enabling automatic propagation in a template also triggers propagation for all connected sites simultaneously.

    Check Trigger Propagation.

  4. Click Save.

If propagation is disabled for a Site Template, enabling propagation immediately begins propagating changes to connected Sites simultaneously. While propagation remains enabled for the template, subsequent changes are propagated to sites individually when they’re first visited by a user.
