As highlighted in above screen select “publish” radio button and click on “OK”
5. This will publish the content type as part of Content type HUB.
6. Once it is published it will be available immediately to consume in other web applications. In SharePoint we have timer job to make it available to subscribers. To enable this immediately we have to run the timer job explicitly from Central Administrator
7. Click on “Review Job definitions” as part of Monitoring
