Summary

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 managed content server, or Output Job, to storage space - such as Box.com, 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
