Property Value


Type: Booleantrue if the metadata that has not been published should be retrieved; otherwise, false.


If you are creating an entity editor you will need to retrieve entity data that has been saved but not published. For other scenarios you will want to only retrieve published metadata.

  • Set this value to true to include unpublished changes, as it would look if you called publish.

  • Set this value to false to include only the currently published changes, ignoring the changes that haven't yet been published.
