Adding delivery keys
Delivery keys are strings of up to 150 characters that can be used instead of the content id to retrieve content items and slots. The delivery key can be a simple string or a path such as "home-page/feature-banner". You can change the delivery key that is associated with a slot or content item, but the item must be republished before the updated key can be used to retrieve its content.
Adding a delivery key
Enter your chosen key in the Delivery key window. The key must be between 1 and 150 characters and follow the delivery key validation rules. The path delimiter "/" can be included in the key, but not as the first or last character.
When the delivery key is saved, the properties pane is updated to include delivery URLs to get the slot by id and by delivery key. You will need to publish the slot before you can use the production delivery URLs.
Content item example
In this example we'll add a delivery key to the winter banner content item. One way to do this is to choose "Delivery key" from the item's menu in the Content Library. As shown in the slot example above, you can also add a delivery key from the content editing window.
For this example the delivery key is set to: "home-page/feature-promo-banner".
When the delivery key has been added, the URL to retrieve the item, using either its id or the delivery key, is shown in the properties pane. The content item must be published before it can be retrieved using the production delivery key URL.
The following URL will retrieve the banner content using its delivery key.
Updating a delivery key
You can update a delivery key once it's set by just choosing "Delivery key" from the Save menu in the content editing window, or from the Content Library. In the example below we're changing the key to "promo-page/main-feature-slot" to change the location in which the slot is displayed. To delete a delivery key, just enter an empty string.
