When setting up a release, you may need to specify certain restrictions including the territories it is available in, and the stores that it will be distributed to.
How do I specify territory restrictions on a release?
You can restrict the sale of a release by territory on the release details page. To access this go to "Release Management" -> "Release List" -> Select Release.
You can then specify the relevant restrictions under the "Territories" tab.
IMPORTANT - Some stores don't support territory restrictions and may put the release live in all territories.
How do I specify default territories for my releases?
You can set the system to restrict the sale of your releases in certain territories by default, in the "Distribution Settings". To access this go to "Settings" -> "Distribution Settings".
You can then specify the relevant restrictions under the "Default Release Territories" section.
Once these are set, click "Apply"
