One way to create a new version of the same item (via the Item Connector), so that it is in a new locale, is by creating a new revision of the same item. It is important to set the following property to: "item.connector.defaultValue.item.priorRevisions.updateNotActive=N' in the connector configuration page prior to running the Item Connector. This will ensure that older versions do not get deactivated during the connector job.


  1. Populate item_data.txt file with new item
  2. Copy and paste entire row onto a new row
  3. Change the LOCALE field to new locale
  4. Change the REV_DTE to unique date/time.
  5. Change Item Connector property to: item.connector.defaultValue.item.priorRevisions.updateNotActive=N
  6. Run the Item Connector

NB: If you would like to update localised fields (CPNT_TITLE, CPNT_DESC etc) for an item - for example you want these fields in more than one locale - you should maintain using the item_locale_data file and updating via the Item Connector also.
