Content lifecycle governs whether an item is visible in the frontend, and whether it is being edited. There are four lifecycle states of an item – master, temp, live and deleted. When persisting items in the database, Sitefinity CMS creates one row for each state. You can think of lifecycle states as separate versions of an item.
