The Data Management – Publishing Destinations page of the Preferences dialog


The Data Management – Publishing Destinations page of the Preferences dialog provides controls to set up publishing destinations or storage spaces where data can be published. Publishing Destinations offer you the ability to publish release data for a revision of a PCB Fabrication Data Item, PCB Assembly Data Item, or PCB Project Design Item, directly from a Workspace, or Output Job, to storage space – such as, Amazon S3, an FTP server, or a simple folder location on a shared network.

The Data Management – Publishing Destinations page enables you to host generated release data securely, while providing access to it on a global scale. For more information, see Working with Publishing Destinations.


The Data Management – Publishing Destinations page of the Preferences dialog is accessed in one of the following ways:

  • Click the Publishing Destinations entry under the Data Management folder in the main Preferences dialog (accessed by clicking the control at the top right of the design space).
  • In an OutJob file, click the Generate and publish control in the selected Output Container entry then select Manage Publishing from the menu that opens.


  • Publishing Destinations – lists the name, type, and status of any existing Publishing Destinations. Double-click on an entry to open the Edit Connection dialog for that publishing destination.
  • Add Destination – click to select one of the following options:

  • Edit Connection – select a publishing destination from the table then click this button to edit information for that entry in the Edit Connection dialog.
  • Remove – select an entry from the publishing destination table then click this button to remove that entry. Only one entry can be removed at a time.
The Publishing option on the System – Network Activity page of the Preferences dialog allows you to disable access to specified, Amazon S3 and FTP server Publishing Destinations when working offline.
