Chapter 5. Using Content Views

Content views are managed selections of content, which contain one or more repositories (yum / puppet) with optional filtering. These filters can be either inclusive or exclusive, and tailor a system view of content for life cycle management. They are used to customize content to be made available to client systems.
This diagram details the creation of new versions of a Content View. These content view versions are promoted along an environment path during the application life cycle.
