Select Automations > Notifications > Publications.
Publications receive content from clients over a supported protocol, and deliver the content as notifications to topics. For more information, see Notification Service.
Click on the Publications tab to open the table view of publications. You will see a list of publications, the topics to which each one publishes, and the communication protocol used to send the notification.
Creating a Publication
Tip: As an alternative, consider building your notification on the Automations page—an easy-to-use interface for creating workflows that can comprise multiple publishers, subscribers, and other notification mechanisms.
To create a publication, click New. Alternatively, select an existing publication that is similar to the one you want to create, and click Duplicate.
- Provide a name for the publication.
- Select a protocol. (See below for descriptions)
- Specify the Topics you want to publish to using the drop-down selector. To create a topic and use it right away, click +.
- Protocol-specific fields appear underneath. Complete these fields. For more information, see Publishers in the FME Server Reference Manual.
- Click OK.
The following are brief descriptions of the available publication protocols. For more information, see Publishers in the FME Server Reference Manual.

Modifying a Publication
To modify a publication, click on the publication entry in the table. A dialog similar to the one used to add new subscribers appears, populated with the properties of the selected subscriber. Make changes as needed and click OK.
Sharing a Publication
To share a publication, click the Share with Others icon. Through sharing, you can grant levels of permissions on an item to other users. You can share an item if you own it, or if you are a user with Manage permission in Security, such as an administrator. For more information about sharing and ownership, see Role-Based and User-Based Access Control.
