  • Description - displays any description associated with the item. Click in the text field to edit the description.
  • Revision State -  this is a non-editable field which displays the lifecycle state of this revision. Note that because data has not yet been released into this revision, the lifecycle state will be Planned.
  • Ancestor Revision – the preceding revision from which this revision of the item has been created/branched. Click  to open a dialog to navigate to and select an existing revision. Click Clear to remove the current Ancestor Revision
