The Server objects State validation dialog


The Server objects State validation dialog is used to specify the checking action to be taken for all lifecycle definitions for the target server. 

See Validating Component Status for more information.


The dialog is accessed from an Outjob by right-clicking on an entry under Validation Outputs then clicking Configure.


  • Settings - the grid presents all lifecycle definitions defined for the target server.
    • Lifecycle Definition - Use the collapse/open control for each Lifecycle Definition to close/open the details for each listed definition.
    • Component State - lists the current component state. This field is not editable. 
    • Description - lists the description of the current Component State. This field is not editable. 
    • Check Action - click in the field to access a drop-down from where you can select the desired action. Choices include:
      • None
      • Warning
      • Error
        Revisions of Component Items used in the design that are in a restricted state (i.e. Check Action has been set to Error) will prevent the release of the board.
The generated report file (<Item-Revision ID> <ProjectName>.html) will list all warnings and errors.
A release will be validated when there are no components with a Check Action status of Error
  • Update from server - use to refresh the dialog with the latest lifecycle definition information directly from the server.
