Modifying Publications

Publications can be modified by removing resources (configuration data) or subscribers (hosts that are updated with the current server's configuration data).

Note
Resources can only be added to publications by using the PureMessage command-line program bin/pmx-share and the configuration file etc/publications.conf.

To modify a publication:

  1. In the Publications section of the Server Groups sidebar, click the name of the publication that you want to modify.

    The Edit Host page is displayed.

  2. You can modify the Publication Name or the Description by editing those text boxes in the Properties form and clicking Save.

    The "Date Modified" line at the bottom of the Properties form is updated, indicating that the publication has been successfully saved and, if the Publication Name was changed, the name of the publication is updated in the sidebar.

  3. You can remove resources by selecting the check box beside the resource in the Published Objects table and clicking Revoke.

    The Edit Host page is redisplayed with the selected resource removed from the Published Objects table.

  4. You can add subscribers by selecting a host from the select host to subscribe drop-down list and clicking Subscribe.

    The Edit Host page is redisplayed with the selected host added to the Subscribers table.

  5. You can remove subscribed hosts from the Subscribers table by selecting the check box beside the subscribed host that you want to remove and clicking Unsubscribe.

    The Edit Host page is redisplayed with the selected host removed from the Subscribers table.
