Default Publishing Targets


If you need to set default publishing targets for all CAs – who don’t have admin users. I.e. all your publishing targets should come by default selected and they should be disabled. And yeah Admin can do anything.


To achieve this functionality you no need to write single line of code . Sitecore Configuration is real gem for this!

1.  Open your Web.Config.

2. Search for “DefaultPublishingTargets“.

Pipe separated list of default publishing targets. Groups in this list will be pre-selected in the Publish dialog. e.g. Live|DR-Live

3. Here you can add all your publishing targets separated by pipe e.g. Live|DR-Live

4. That’s it!

Worth to read :

Happy Publishing! 🙂

    The CA should have write access to the Target Databases,it would not work if they do not have write access to the databases, or maybe atleast for me (Sitecore V 6.2 update dec)
