This tab is available only if a workflow is defined for the product. You can see here all workflow versions of the currently edited product. The history is also displayed when a particular version has been published and when it was replaced with a new one.
You can perform the following actions with the versions:
• View - displays an overview of the product's content with the possibility of side-by-side comparison of versions.
• Rollback - rolls back any changes made since the particular version of the product.
• Delete - deletes the old product's version.
After clicking the icon in the header of the Actions column, a context menu is displayed, offering options for export of listed data to various types of files. You can also use the Clear history button to clear all versions except the latest one. Please note that the length of the version history can be configured in Site Manager -> Settings -> Content -> Content management -> Version history length.
Kentico CMS supports automatic version numbering:
•If you use workflow without content locking, automatic version numbering is used by default.
•If you use content locking, this option is optional and can be configured in Site Manager -> Settings -> Content -> Content management -> Use automatic version numbering.
The automatic version numbering works as shown in the following example:
•0.1 - the first version of the product when it is created.
•0.2 - the second modification of the product.
•1.0 - the first published version of the product.
•1.1 - the first modification of the published product.
•2.0 - the second published version of the product.
Detailed information concerning versioning can be found in Developer's Guide -> Content management -> Workflow and versioning.
Further information about products can be found in E-commerce Guide -> Managing your store -> Products.
