Item version

The system can create a new version of the item and deactivate the previous version to ensure that items currently being requested are not affected by these changes.

If you alter a question associated with an item, then you can republish the item. For example, if you change the default value of a question associated to an item, a new version of that item is automatically created when the changed item is published.

As a result, you can see multiple records with the same item name in the Catalog Item Table [sc_cat_item] when viewing all items. The published version of the item is the only active one.
