Content item properties

The properties pane in the content editing window provides you with easy access to information about a content item or slot. It also includes a content delivery section from which you can view and copy the content ID and the URL used to retrieve item from the Content Delivery API.

On this page we'll explain the features of the properties pane in detail. More information about using the Content Delivery API can be found in the Development section.

Content item properties

The properties pane in the content editing window allows you to view information about a content item, or a slot, all in one place.

To open the content editing window, double-click a content item or slot in the Content Library or choose "View" from the item's menu. You can show or hide the properties pane by clicking the "i" icon at the top right of the window. The item's name, content type, creation and modification date, and publish status are shown, together with the item's locale and status if set. You can also see the current version and the user that made the most recent change.

In the example below the latest version of the "Get ready for winter promotion" content item is published and it has a status of "Accepted".

Content delivery

In the "Content delivery" section you can view and copy the Content ID and the URL that developers use to retrieve the content item from the Content Delivery API. Clicking the URL will fetch the content and display the result in a new window.

Note that the content delivery URL will only work when the content has been published and will return the latest published version of the content.
