Explain replication and the steps involved in this process?
Replication refers to activating the Author Page Instance to the Process Instance. Let’s take a look at the various steps included in this process.
Step 1: When an author or the writer requests specific content manually. Automatic triggers are also pre-configured for publishing online.
Step 2: These requests are then transferred to the relevant replication agent; various apps and platforms feature different agents for taking such actions
Step 3: After the replication agent puts the content through the packaging process, it is added to the replication queue.
Step 4: The content is then transferred to the publishing platform using the pre-configured settings and protocols. Typically, this protocol is HTTP.
Step 5: The publishing environment servlet gets the request and publishes the desired content. The default replication servlet is https://localhost:4503/bin/receive.
