Build is a command that a qualified user can issue through the Content Manager channel in the context of a particular node in the repository of a given project; all the directories and files beneath that node will be processed according to their output rules as defined in the project definition, which may involve processing includes, XSL transformations, or other data filtering. There may be 0, 1 or many files output per repository file, depending on the configuration. The output files are stored to the build filesystem, as configured in the project definition.
The build command issues a request to the request engine, and opens a request report in a separate window.
