This documentation page references Altium Vault, which is no longer a supported product. Altium Vault and its component management features have migrated to Altium Concord Pro.

    

                                           

                                      The Release Options (online release (left image) and offline release (right image)) and Item Naming tabs 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 the vault (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).
  • For an online release, 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 an Altium Vault). 

Options/Controls

Release Options Tab

  • Release Target - use the drop-down to select a different release target vault. To release locally in offline mode, select Folder from the drop-down. You can also use  on the right-hand side to open the Data Management - Vaults page of the Preferences dialog to define connections to vaults, if required.
  • Output Jobs
    • Source Data - enable the desired project source data. 
    • Fabrication Data - enable the desired data that will be used for board manufacturing (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.
    • Custom Docs - enable the desired boxes to use backward compatibility and custom flows. Note that no references will be created, except to source data.

Item Naming Tab

  • Project Name - use to define the name for the project. By default, this will be filled with the actual name of the project. Enter a new name if desired.
  • Project Folder - use to define the top-level target folder in the vault into which the data will be released. Use  to open the Choose Folder dialog to search for and select a different folder. 
  • Item Type/Name - displays the default naming schemes for the various data items that can be generated as part of the release.

Additional Controls

  • Settings - click to open the Naming Template Settings dialog which allows you to change naming schemes if desired.
