Walkthrough: Using Publishing Targets in order to create preview environment with Sitecore 9.3

I made this 22-minutes long video in order to demonstrate how one can create a preview environment by creating a new publishing target on an example of vanilla Sitecore 9.3.

Adding new publishing target is very helpful when you:

  1. would allow content authors to demonstrate the content being not in a final state
  2. want to demonstrate that content to an audience without access to your Sitecore instance

This demo shows how to create a publishing target database, assign it to a designated hostname and then also to create an index for a given preview database. It also demonstrates the difference between publishing content in non-final-state into both live and preview databases.

Hope it helps!
