Getting Started: Adding Component(s)

To create a new Component select the desired Version node within the Product tree and choose from menu {Version > Add Component(s)}.

This will initiate "Add Component(s)" which you can see below.

 

There are two available choices. You can either create a new Component or copy a Component (and namely all its properties) from selected version.

 

 

This will initate a "Add New Component" dialog:

 

 

New Component:

 

· Name:

Enter New Component name here. It can be changed later after component creation.

 

· ID:

Generated automatically and cannot be changed after component is created.

 

· Required:

Select this option if a component to be added is Required.

 

Refer to the "Concepts and definitions" section for more information concerning Component definition in terms of PatchFactory and Component parameters list.

 

 

 

Copy from version:

 

 

Here you can clone some components from one of the previous versions upon your selection.

Select a version from a drop-down box. In the field below check components which you want to transfer to the created Component.

According to the choice made empty components will be created with identical properties (as the selected components from selected version).

 

 

After New Component is created you can define additional (optional) Component parameters.
