To signal that a Release needs to be taken down before the street date has arrived, it is sufficient for the Release Creator to send a new
NewReleaseMessage for that Release, albeit, with no
Deal composite. If wanted, the Release Creator may communicate only a Deal with an EndDate set in the past.
The same approach can be used to reduce the rights before a street date. In that case, the
Deal that is not to become active may simply be omitted from the new
For example, a Release previously communicated with a release release date in the future (start date of 8th April, for instance) that needs to be taken down today (6th April) so that that it does not go live on the 8th April needs to be taken down with an end date of yesterday (5th April).
Remove the sample below.
<ValidityPeriod> <!—no start date, only end date with yesterday’s date --> <EndDate>2016-04-05</EndDate> </ValidityPeriod>
