Adding files to the Depot
You can use the Depot to store files.
After you have added a file to the Depot you can edit it using your choice of editors. For more information about editors, see Content editors.
To see or modify any properties, permissions, or audit trail information that apply to this file, select the Properties, Permissions, and Audit Trail view.
Instead of adding a file to the Depot, you can store it as a BLPackage. Deploying files as BLPackages provides many advantages over using a File Deploy Job to deploy a file, including the ability to simulate, stage, and undo the deployment.
