Modified by Susan Riege on Dec 20, 2018

  The Release Options tab and Item Naming tab of the Project Release Options dialog

   

Summary

The Project Release Options dialog is used to assign the applicable Outjobs and define how the target data items in a server (whose revisions receive the generated data) are named when releasing a project.

Access

The dialog is accessed in the following ways:

  • Click Options in the Release view of the Project Releaser (Project » Project Releaser).
  • From the Project Releaser, click on the Target Revision link for a data set to be released then choose Edit from the context menu.
This access option is available only when performing an online release (i.e. if you are currently connected to a server). 

Options/Controls

Release Options Tab

  • Release Target - use the drop-down to select a release target server.
    • Managed - <Server Name> - select to release to the specified server.
    • Unmanaged Folder - select to release locally in offline mode to a folder.
    • Unmanaged - Zip - select to release locally in offline mode to a zip file.
  • Output Jobs
    • Source Data - enable the desired project source data. 
    • Fabrication Data - enable the desired data that will be used for board manufacturing (e.g., Gerber, ODB++, drilling information, etc.). The exact content will be determined by the outjob.
    • Assembly Data - enable the desired data that represents assembly information (e.g., pick and place, assembly drawings, etc.). The exact content will be determined by the outjob. Each variant is released to an individual item.
  • Release Target
