Managing Publishing Rules (Deprecated)

After you create a channel, you can specify any publishing rules. If both a video and a channel have publishing rules, Backlot evaluates both rule sets for each video and uses the more restrictive settings.

Note: Channels and channel sets have been deprecated and are scheduled to be disabled. For details and alternatives, see the OVP Release Notes.

To manage publishing rules:

  1. Log in to the Backlot UI. The Backlot UI opens.
  2. Open the MANAGE page. The MANAGE page opens with a list of content.
  3. To only view channels, select CHANNEL under CONTENT TYPES in the left pane.
  4. Select a channel.
  5. Click the Syndication tab.
  6. Select from the following:
    • To use a set of publishing rules that you already configured, select Use default flight times from syndication group and select the publishing rules group from the GROUP list box.
    • To specify a range when the content con play, select Specific Range and select a range.
    • To specify a recurring period when the content con play, select Recurring and select when the content can run.
