AEM 6.4 has reached the end of extended support and this documentation is no longer updated. For further details, see our technical support periods. Find the supported versions here.
Create a launch to enable the updating of a new version of existing web pages for future activation. When you create a Launch, you specify a title and the source page:
The title appears in the Sidekick, from where authors can access them to work on them.
The child pages of the source page are included in the launch by default. You can use only the source page if desired.
By default, Live Copy automatically updates the launch pages as the source pages change. You can specify that a static copy is created to prevent automatic changes.
Optionally, you can specify the Launch Date (and time) to define when the launch pages are to be promoted and activated. However the Launch Date only operates in combination with the Production Ready flag (see Editing a Launch Configuration); for the actions to actually occur automatically, both must be set.
