#Does Akeneo data override content staging

Since the 101.7.0 version of the Akeneo Connector for Magento 2, you can configure the connector's behavior depending on Magento 2 content staging feature, in the connector configuration page, in Category:

Connector parameter Magento information
Does Akeneo data override content staging Yes or No

Note that this parameter will only be relevant on Magento 2 Enterprise Edition, as the content staging feature is specific to this version.

Magento 2 content staging is used to create scheduled versions of categories.

If set to Yes, Akeneo PIM data will override all category versions no matter what changes was scheduled. Categories will still have scheduled versions in Magento 2, but if the name in Akeneo PIM has been modified in the scheduled versions, the value will be overridden by the name imported from Akeneo PIM.

If set to No, Akeneo PIM data will only update the "base" version of the categories and not the scheduled versions.
