Updating ‘Structure Only’ doesn’t update content of a language copy

Last update: 2023-04-11


Adobe Experience Manager (AEM)


Using the Structure Only option while updating a language copy does not update the content of the page.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new language copy (i.e., ES) using the Structure Only option.
  2. Edit the English/Master page by adding text.
  3. Update the ES language copy of that page using the Structure Only option.
  4. Notice that the changes made in step 2 are not updated.


If a content change is required, the user will have to manually promote the launch.

This is the intended behavior. Structure Only updates do not promote the launch, so the content is not updated.
