variation page propagation issue, pages getting propagated even when timre job is stopped RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are facing an issue with variation page propagations.

    We had disabled variation page propagation and variation site propagation defination timerjobs in central admin for an application. Now, when we see variation logs under /_layouts/settings.aspx of the site collection, we see that the pages in target variations got updated (on later dates, since the jobs were disabled), i.e. new updated page from source variation propagated to target variations and got stored as a draft version even when the timer jobs were Disabled.

    Furthermore we see in the variation logs that the system attempted to propagate the source variation's updated page to target variations hourly since the date it was updated and published in the source variation.

    Just to add, we have Automatic creation set to "<label for="ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ctl01_automaticCreationTrue">Automatically create site and page variations</label>" in site collection's variation's settings page.

    May you please put some light as to why this would happen? Is there something that I am missing here?

    thanks and regards,
