I am somhow new to SharePoint and I have read on an online training which mentioned that “Creating a new content type using feature will improve re usability, since it will enable us to transfer content types from one environment to other”. So this raise the following question which I need to know in the future:-
If I create a new content type directly from the SharePoint administrator (not using Visual studio), then will I be able to transfer the newly content types from my development to my UAT environment?
Let say that I currently have three versions of my sharePoint application on the three environments. If I created new items, lists and content types in addition I have created a new wiki site in my development environment. And I have unit tested these on my development environment. Then how I can only transfer the newly added components to my UAT environment which include:-
• A wiki site
• Content types
• Document library
A• And updating privileges on an existing team site.
