Creating a report

You can create reports that show the details of controlled objects, as well as diagnostic and troubleshooting information. For more information on the available reports, see Creating Reports .

Working with available objects

With available objects, you can perform all the supported tasks of registered objects (Show history, view live reports, view properties, unregister, create labels, and import/export), as well as:

Enabling/disabling workflow

If you have the Enable/Disable right, you can enable and disable the workflow for a deployed object. The object must be under version control and be a major version (for example, 2.0).

Expand the Version Control Root node and the required container.

Checking out objects

Before users can edit registered objects, they must be checked out. The workflow is as follows: Check-out the object from the system, make the required edits, and check in the changes to the system.

Checking out an object for the first time creates a copy of the original live version.

Version information is updated in the system’s history when the object is checked back in. Only one person within the system can check out and work on any object at a given time.

Expand the Version Control Root node and the required container.
