Managing Publishing Rules

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

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 channel sets, select CHANNEL SET under CONTENT TYPES in the left pane.
  4. Select a channel set.
  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.
