Tutorial slot

This schema snippet shows how to create a slot that can contain the tutorial banner and tutorial carousel.

The slotContent is an array of up to 5 banners or carousels. This property is included in the required properties, so when you add a slot created from this schema to an edition, you must add some content for the slot to be valid. See adding the slot to an edition on this page for more details.

Pre-requisites

You will need to have registered the tutorial banner and tutorial carousel schemas in order to add content those created from these content types to this slot.

How to use

If you don't want to use the tutorial banner and tutorial carousel with this slot, you can update the contentTypes array to include your own content types.

Adding the slot to an edition

When a slot created from this slot type is added to an edition, the slot validation is shown as "Requires content" which means that some content must be added to the slot, otherwise it does not pass slot validation and the edition cannot be scheduled. The slot must contain content because the slotContent property in the example schema is required.
