A Title is a collection of Issues, on the same theme content, containing information about the Issues: name, cover, publication type, other metadata, etc. An Issue is one published content. You need to create a Title to organize the Issues and publish them under the same theme.

In Cloud Connect you can deposit content manually, as ZAVE files, once you have exported your ZAVE file via InDesign Plugin or Cloud Authoring.

The .ZAVE is assigned to an Issue, which is part of a Title. Before adding the ZAVE file on Cloud Connect, you need to create a Title in Cloud Connect, then an Issue.
