I am writing a custom transport/deployment mechanism for SDL Tridion 2013 which pushes content to a third party application. The out of the box status labels for the publishing queue contain values like waiting for publish, transporting, waiting for commitment etc. Is it possible to extend this list with custom values like waiting for import job?

If this is possible to do in a supported way, how can it be done, and is it documented somewhere?

  • Is tridion directly accessed by third party users OR third party users has some services to publish the content? May 30, 2013 at 13:07
  • Neither - Tridion users publish content to a third party 'deployer-like' application which has steps for deployment which differ from the standard Tridion Deployer. So I would like to communicate the status of these steps to the user who performed the publish action. May 30, 2013 at 13:12

Why not use the "Deploying" state (which is what the tridion uses when it is processing)?

  • In our case deploying has about ten steps which all take time. We were hoping to display this progress to the user instead of leaving the item in "deploying" for such a long time. But if we can't change this we will have to reuse an existing status. Jun 4, 2013 at 11:42
