Use these guidelines while publishing or subscribing to content in the Content Library.

Subscription (destination) folders or catalogs should not contain any content that Content Sync did not create. Specify an empty folder on a vSphere cloud or an empty catalog on a vCloud Director cloud when you set up your subscription and do not add any other content to it after you subscribe.

vCloud Connector assumes that subscription folders and catalogs are under its management. If a subscription folder or catalog contains other content, vCloud Connector might overwrite or delete it if naming conflicts occur.

Do not use the same subscription folder or catalog for multiple subscriptions. For each published folder or catalog to which you subscribe, have a corresponding subscription folder or catalog.

If you use the same subscription folder or catalog for multiple subscriptions, vCloud Connector might overwrite or delete templates if naming conflicts occur.

Nested folders and catalogs are ignored. vCloud Connector does not support publishing or subscribing to a hierarchy of templates. Only the templates at the top level of a folder or catalog are published to the Content Library.

Content in a published folder that is not a template is ignored. For example, if the folder you publish contains both templates and virtual machines, only the templates are published to the Content Library.

A folder or catalog can only be published once. Multiple users should not publish the same folder or catalog to the Content Library.

Do not publish a subscription folder or catalog (that is, the destination folder or catalog for a subscription) to the Content Library.

Do not use a published folder or catalog as a subscription folder.

Metadata in published vCloud Director templates is preserved depending upon the credentials with which the clouds containing the published catalog and subscription catalog are registered with vCloud Connector. See How Metadata is Preserved During Content Sync.
