- How to view a release in a preview environment
With the Releases app, you can schedule stories in releases and schedule your stories for publishing automatically.
This feature is quite useful when you are done with a content pipeline and want to schedule publishing for a date in the future. To enable releases in your Storyblok space, check out our documentation on the Releases app here.
- First, navigate to your preview story in the visual editor, and check for the presence of a
_storyblok_releaseURL parameter. The URL parameter is attached to the iframe
srcwhen you’re inside a release.
You can also see this if you can open the story you’re viewing in a release as a preview. Here you can see the full URL with the
_storyblok_release parameter present as shown in the image below
_storyblok_releaseURL parameter can be used as the value for the from_release API parameter, which is used to fetch this releases version of the story
