Preserving page level regions when assigning a new configuration set

Hello again,

Is there a way to preserve page level region assignments when changing a page's content type? As you'll see in my LICECAP recording, I have two page-level regions (210-SPIF-RIGHT, 220-SPIF-RIGHT) whose assignments get detached when a new content type and configuration set are assigned.

The template diagram illustrates that the new configuration set (Admissions Footer) shares the same template as the one originally attached (Standard Bootstrap). Both configuration sets and the template have no blocks or formats attached to these regions and the 'No Block' and 'No Format' check boxes are not checked.

I didn't see this topic addressed in the forum already. We're running 7.12.4.

Thanks.

    Hi Erik,

    I believe this behavior is due to the Outputs from the new Content Type being completely different from the old one, so when the form reloads to reflect the change the assignments are replaced with that of the new configuration set.

    I was able to find this related suggestion on our Idea Exchange. I highly recommend voting this up if you would like this feature to be considered for a future release.

    In the meantime, you're best bet would be to use Web Services to perform the Content Type change. Specifically, you can read the page's configurations and record whatever is in the pageRegions, which would be the page-level assignments. Then, when changing the Content Type you would re-apply these page-level assignments.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    I'll look into using Web Services and let you know if I have any questions.
