Manage Quick Deploy jobs

 

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2010-08-09

A Quick Deploy job enables users such as authors and editors to quickly deploy Web pages. For users to use the Quick Deploy feature, the Publishing feature must be enabled for the site collection, and the user must be a member of the Quick Deploy users group.

Before you can run a Quick Deploy job, you must first create a new content deployment path. Content deployment paths specify a source and destination for content deployment and specify other related settings such as authentication information. For information about creating a new content deployment path, see Manage content deployment paths and jobs.

noteNote
If you are using Remote BLOB Storage (RBS), and the RBS provider that you are using does not support snapshots, you cannot use snapshots for content deployment or backup. For example, the SQL FILESTREAM provider does not support snapshots. For more information about RBS, see Overview of RBS (SharePoint Server 2010).

A Quick Deploy job is created automatically when a new content deployment path is created. Although a Quick Deploy job is created automatically, the job itself is not active until a farm administrator enables Quick Deploy jobs along a specific path. After the Quick Deploy job has been enabled, the farm administrator can then modify the settings for the Quick Deploy job, including the job schedule and notifications for the job. By default, a Quick Deploy job runs automatically every 15 minutes. When a user clicks the Quick Deploy button on the Publish tab for a Web page, that page will be included in the next automatically scheduled Quick Deploy job. Alternatively, a farm administrator can manually run or cancel a Quick Deploy job at any time by using the Manage Content Deployment Paths and Jobs page.

noteNote
If a Web page is scheduled to be published at a specific date and time, the Quick Deploy job will copy that Web page to the destination location along with any other items contained in the job. The Web page will be published on the destination site according to the publishing schedule associated with that Web page.
