The staging team received multiple requests about adding some
enhancements to staging. This post is about the recent two minor enhancements.
At first, the problem was, during staging it was possible to
delete all data before the Import process starts. If the User did
not look carefully, it could do serious harms in a Production database.
To prevent this, we added a confirmation dialog, where the User
is asked to confirm the intention of deletion application data
before import. We have added this safecheck to the Site(Group),
Page(Layout) and Portlet import options.
Also we have enhanced the error message which is displayed when
a reference is missing during remote staging publication.
If you have any ideas to improve staging, please open a feature
request on https://issues.liferay.com/.
If you have any questions about these enhancements feel free to
contact Liferay support or me (firstname.lastname@example.org), or check KCS
articles on https://help.liferay.com/.
Have a nice day! :)
