How to save PageData item as a Common Draft?



We have a custom class that extends PageData.

We are currently saving the data using IContentRepository.

How can we set the saved version as Common Draft?

Also, is Common Draft the same as Primary Draft? Documentation is not clear on that.

Hi JJ,

Set Saved version as Common Draft as following:

writablePage.Name = "a new name";
 var saveAction = SaveAction.CheckIn | SaveAction.ForceNewVersion;
var newReference = _contentRepository.Save(writablePage, saveAction, EPiServer.Security.AccessLevel.NoAccess);
var repository = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<IContentVersionRepository>();
  • Primary Draft mainly refers to "what version do you want to start to see when you're editing".
  • Common draft refresh to the new version when you create the content.
