Creating a navigation
A navigation is a consistent piece of content that appears at the top of each page in a site. Enterprise-grade navigations typically include links to different pages and sections, such as product offerings, solutions, use cases, company information, and more.
Navigations follow the rules of content hierarchy. If you define a navigation at the global level, it flows to the site level, then the section level, and finally the asset level.
