Pattern Define nodes

A Pattern Define node is created for every define block in the definitions block for a Pattern Module node. See Pattern Management TPL for more details on define blocks.

Pattern Define node lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which a Pattern Define node is created, updated or removed.

Creation

Pattern Define nodes are created as a result of activating a Pattern Module that contains a definitions block that has one or more define blocks. As such the creation of Pattern Define nodes is driven by the management of Patterns. See Knowledge management for details.

Update

Pattern Define nodes are never updated as they are defined in Pattern Modules and the act of editing a Pattern Module creates a new instance.

Removal

Pattern Define nodes are removed when their associated Pattern Modules are destroyed.
