20231116 - The Content Management API Now Supports Document and Page Locales

This Content release improves support for localization and translation operations at API level.


Holiday Freeze

Please note that Bloomreach is in an active holiday freeze from November 14th, 2023 until January 23rd, 2024 during which no new releases will be deployed to customer environments in order to decrease any risks of unforeseen incidents.

The last Content release to be deployed before the freeze is 20231102. The next release to be deployed after the freeze is expected to be 20240110 and will contain all changes introduced after the 20231102 release.

πŸŽ‰ New Features

πŸš€ Improvements

  • The 'locale' property of a channel is now considered read-only by the Site Management API in order to preserve consistency with content associated with the channel. Bloomreach intends to make similar changes in upcoming releases to improve consistency for use cases related to localization and content reuse.

πŸ› Bug fixes

  • Documents can no longer incorrectly be in published state temporarily in certain scenarios.
  • Linking a translated folder to the root folder of another channel in the Content app, which caused an invalid state and locked up the UI, is no longer possible.
  • The title of the Synchronize translated pages dialog in the Experience manager no longer incorrectly shows an ellipsis (...).
  • The Delivery API 2.0 (Beta) now generates correct OpenAPI specifications for content types using content blocks.


Releases are deployed to customer environments 2 weeks after the date encoded in the release version. This will occur between 10:00-14:00 CET on a Tuesday for customers hosted in the US or APAC. (This is usually 4-8am EST or 18:00-22:00 AET, except during daylight saving time transitions.) For customers in the EU, this will happen on the same Tuesday between 18:00-22:00 CET. Please note that logged-in users might get logged out during the maintenance window.
