Archive Sets Table

The Archive Sets table shows the archive sets that have been created for a particular CSR. You can create and migrate archive sets whenever this table is displayed. To open the archive sets table, click Archive Sets on the Object Management tab of the Change Management/Version Control window. The table appears in the right section of the tab page.

The Archive Sets button becomes activated whenever you select the CSR node, the All Objects node, or the Migration Path node in the tree view on the left side of the tab page. If you select any object or developer node in the tree structure while the Archive Set table is displayed, the view switches to the Environment Info table and the Archive Sets button becomes dithered. This is because archive set information is not specific to these nodes and cannot be filtered.

To view archive set information by environment, select any of the environment nodes under the Migration Path node. This filters the archive set table to show information about only the archive sets created from that environment.

To sort rows of information in the Archive Set table, click on the column headings.

The archive set table displays the following information:

This is the archive set ID, which Stat automatically generates. Archive sets appear in the order you create them.

This is the source environment from which you copied the objects in the archive set. It must be an environment in the migration path defined for the CSR. A “-w” appears at the end of the environment name if the archive set was taken from the Development environment and it contains files that were taken from the users' working directories rather than the source file locations of the development environment. If it was taken from a VCM repository, a “-v” appears on the end of the environment name.

This is the type of archive set. Options include Base, Interim, and Final.

This is the description you entered when you created the archive set. Descriptions help distinguish between different interim archive sets. Base archive sets always contain the description: “Stat Baseline Set.”

This indicates how many objects the archive set contains. For a base or final archive set, this number is the total number of objects locked on the CSR. An interim archive set may contain less than that number.

This indicates the current status of the archive set. Possible statuses include:

In Process – Indicates that Stat is currently archiving the objects. When you add objects to a CSR, the archive set is in this initial status until all objects are archived. When the Stat is finished archiving, the status changes to Complete.
Complete – Indicates that all objects are archived
Complete/With Errors – Indicates that the archive set is created but errors were detected during the archiving process. For generic applications, this could mean that one of the environments is not clean, or it could mean that Stat could not find the file objects you wanted to archive, or that the file location information was not set up correctly. Some errors are so severe that the archive set is unusable. Refer to the Logs window for further information.
Complete/With Warnings – Indicates that the archive set is created but warnings were issued during the archiving process. You can still migrate an archive set in this status. Refer to the Logs window and investigate further.
Delete Pending – Indicates that the archive set is set for deletion. It remains in this status until Stat completes its tasks.
Deleted – Indicates that Stat deleted the archive set

If selected, this indicates one or both of the following:

For more information on mass migrations and migration approvals, see Migration Approvals and Mass Migrations (Generic Applications) .

This indicates the status of any archive set that you marked as Ready to Migrate. Before you select the target environment(s) for the archive set, the status is N/A. After you select the target environment(s), the status is In Process. Once the archive set has been migrated to all the selected environment(s), Ready to Migrate is unchecked and the status reverts to N/A.

This is the date that the archive set was created.

The archive sets table features the following short cut buttons:

New – Opens the Archive Set window in which you can define new archive sets
Edit – Opens the Archive Set window in which you can edit the selected archive set
Delete – Deletes the selected archive set
Refresh – Refreshes the window with the most up-to-date information from the Stat Repository. You can also press <F5> to refresh.
Print – Prints the contents of the Archive Set table
Migration Target – Opens the Target Environments window for the source environment of the selected archive set. This button is activated when Ready to Migrate is selected for the archive set.

Creating Archive Sets (Generic Applications)

As you make your changes to objects, you should periodically make interim archive sets. This lets you save your work at that point in time. When all your changes are completed and approved, you should make a final archive set. The procedure for both is the same.

In Type field, select the type of archive set you want to create.
Your options include Interim and Final. Base sets are automatically created by Stat.
In Environment field, select the environment containing the objects you want to include in the archive set.
In the Description field, enter a short description of the changes you made to the objects.
Select Environment if the source environment is Development and you want to take the file archives from the environment’s source file locations
Select Working if the source environment is Development and you want to take the file archives from the assigned user’s working directories. Or select No if you want to take the archives from the source file locations of Development.
Select VCM if you have associated the CSR with a version control management record and you want to take the file archives from the VCM repository. After selecting this option, a VCM-specific field is displayed (Revision for SVN and P4, Tag/Branch for CVS and Git, Label for PVCS, and Version for TFS). In this field you can specify the particular version of the objects you want to add from the VCM repository. Your system administrator may have configured a default value, but you can override it either by entering the version you want manually or by clicking the control button and selecting the version from the dropdown list. If left blank, Stat adds the most recent version of the objects in the repository.
Stat goes out to the source environment or file locations and looks for the object. If it finds the object it displays the value Yes in the corresponding Exists field. If the object does not exist, Stat displays the value No. Objects that do not exist in the source environment cannot be included in the archive set.
Click OK.

Archive Set Object Information

To see the details of your archive set, double-click on it in the Archive Set table. This re-opens the archive set window. The Details tab should look familiar since this is the tab you filled out when you created the archive set. The next tab, Objects, now contains all of the object information for the archive set.

The Objects tab displays the following information:

N/A. Oracle Applications only.

Indicates the class of object. Object classes include data and file.

The object type.

The object name.

A version number internal to Stat. It indicates the number of times the object has been modified/archived in Stat for a given environment.

Reflects the current status of the object. Possible statuses include:

Archived – Indicates Stat finished archiving the object
Archive Pending – Indicates Stat is in the process of archiving the object
Wait Lock – Indicates Stat is waiting for Stat to issue the objects in this CSR a lock. You can archive only locked objects.
Delete Pending – Indicates Stat is in the process of deleting the objects
Re-archive Pending – Indicates Stat is in the process of archiving the object again

Indicates the number of errors found. See the Logs window for further details.

Indicates the number of warnings found. See Logs window for further details.

If the object is a data object, this field shows the number of tables and rows in Stat used to complete the archive. If it is a file object, the field shows the exact file location of the archive source in the archive set.

This information is displayed at the bottom of the window. It shows the total number of objects in the archive set and how many of these have been archived.

The Objects tab features the following short cut buttons:

Add – Adds selected objects to the archive set. Press this button and Stat displays a list of the objects.
Delete – Deletes all of the objects in the selected archive set. You cannot delete objects from a base or final archive set.
 Re-archive – Instructs Stat to re-archive the objects
Refresh – Refreshes the current display
Print – Prints the contents of the window
Export – Exports the contents of the window
Default Order – N/A. Oracle Applications only.
Reorder – N/A. Oracle Applications only.
View – For file or schema object types only, displays the definition of the selected object in a separate window.

Copying Archive Sets

When you copy an archive set, the copy retains the migration order set on the source archive set.
