What is deployment and how do I use it?

Deployment is a function that makes content you change on your website pages publicly visible. Changes on these pages are not externally viewable until deployed.

How to make a deployment

There are two types of pages or content that get published: static and dynamic. Deployments are required for static pages, not for dynamic pages.

When first setting up a new Brikl account, a one-time deployment is required. To deploy successfully, an account must have at least one content page set up.

Dynamic (real-time) pages

MicroStores

All MicroStore pages, including the homepage, product and collection pages, cart, and checkout pages, are dynamic pages and will show the most recent data at all times. Deployment is not required as these pages update in real time. 

All updates you make to product prices, product package prices, libraries (except the font library), discounts (promotions or coupons), or upcharges (fundraising or fees) for MicroStores are made in real-time. No deployments are required

Deployments are not required for MicroStores - all updates are visible onsite in real time.

Design Studio

All updates you make in the Design Studio are dynamic. This includes changes to for example, the designs, design steps, and placeholder editor. Likewise, all updates you make to the Design Studio libraries (except the font library) are made in real-time. No deployments are required.

Static pages

Deploying changes across static pages will ensure that your most recent changes are publicly visible. 

Storefront

Deployments are needed for all your static pages, including the storefront homepage, product pages, collection pages, and theme settings.

Storefront pages do not include MicroStore pages.

All updates you make to product prices, product package prices, discounts (promotions or coupons), or upcharges (fundraising or fees) for your storefront require deployment.

How to make a deployment for static pages?

Each storefront has a deployment button.  If you have more than one storefront, you must deploy them individually.

Go to Dashboard > Sales Channel > Storefront > (select your storefront) > Deployment.

A deployment cycle is usually completed in around 10 minutes.

How to roll back changes?

Hitting the publish button or rolling back to a specific deployment date will allow that particular deployment to be displayed in the storefront instead of the latest one.

So no more going back and forth updating the same pages or the same sets of data if you made a mistake. You can simply click the “Publish” button in the deployment tab to recall the settings.
