Associating Objects with CSRs (Generic Applications)

You access and work with objects in a CSR. The CSR becomes the logical grouping of all the affected objects.

Remember that objects are associated with CSRs as opposed to users. In order to lock, archive, or migrate an object, you must first associate it with a CSR. The modifications that you make to objects are still made in the application environment— Stat simply provides tools that manage and track those changes.­­­

You can manually associate objects with a CSR, or you can use two wizards to associate objects en masse. These include:

Objects can also be associated with a CSR using the Impact Analysis Wizard and the Undocumented Object Wizard. For more information, see Object Tools and Wizards .

Selecting a Migration Path

In order to associate objects with a CSR, you must specify the environment you want to copy them from. This is done first by selecting a migration path. In Stat, migration paths are logical groupings of environments that serve as road maps for object migrations. They are set up by your system administrator.

Your system administrator creates migration paths based on your business needs. For different situations you have different paths.

In the Select Migration Path field, select the appropriate migration path.
In the Select Default Developer field, select a developer.
Note that if your selected Workflow has a default VCM Repository assigned to it, that VCM Repository will automatically be assigned on the migration path.
Click Generate Path.

Assigning Developers

Before adding the objects to the CSR, you need to decide which Stat user is going to be making the changes to the objects and therefore needs to be assigned the object lock. If the user is the default user in the Assigned To field, then you can just add the objects and the default user will obtain the lock. If another user needs the lock on the objects, select that user from the drop down list in the Assigned To field. When you add the objects, the user in this field is assigned the object locks. See Selecting Lock Options for more information.

Selecting Objects

You can select the objects you want to add to your CSR manually, or you can use the wizards to select groups of objects. The procedure for manually selecting the objects you want to associate with your CSR is slightly different depending on the class of objects.

To select a data or schema object, first select the generic application environment, then the object type and the object.

In the Environment field, select the environment that contains the objects.
The initial object snapshot, the base archive set, always comes from the Base environment. No matter which database you select in the Environment field, Stat copies the objects from the Base environment. Even if you add objects later, they still come from the Base environment.
When you select an environment, the Object Type field displays a “Loading...” message. During this time, Stat connects to the selected generic application environment and checks which object types are available.
TIP: If Stat returns a large number of objects, you can quickly locate the particular object you want by typing the first few letters of the object name in the Quick Filter field. As you type, Stat filters the list of objects so that only objects with matching names are displayed.
In the Object Type field, select the type of object you want.

You can select file objects residing in a generic application environment, the assigned developer’s working directory, or (if configured) a version control management repository.

In the Environment field, do one of the following:
Select Working Directory if you want to add files that exist in the assigned developer’s working directory but not in any of environments to which Stat has access
Select VCM Repository if you have associated the CSR with a VCM record and you want to archive and migrate objects that reside in the VCM repository.
In the Object Type field, select the type of file you want.
(Optional) Select Copy to Working.
NOTE: This option is selected by default if Copy Files to Working is selected in the Stat User Options window. For information on user-defined working directories, see Defining Working Directories for File Objects .

If you have added a large number of objects to a CSR, you can filter the list of objects so that only the objects you want to view are visible. You can then save the filter settings so that the object list remains filtered the next time you open the CSR.
