Adding version control labels to objects

You can add version control labels to any object listed in the object modification log (the AR System Version Control: Object Modification Log form).

Important

If an object does not have at least one entry in the AR System Version Control: Object Modification Log form, you cannot add a version control label to it.



You can add version control labels only to the current version of the object. You cannot add them to earlier versions, even if those versions are listed in the log.

Each version of an object can have multiple version control labels.

Each version control label can be added to multiple objects.

To enable version control labeling

  1. On the Version Control tab of the AR System Administration: Server Information form, set the following options:
  2. Click OK.

  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK in the confirmation message.
