The Environment configuration compliance setup dialog
The Environment configuration compliance setup dialog


The Environment configuration compliance setup dialog provides options to set up the environment configuration compliance conditions. It provides a means to conclusively test and enforce the use of company-authorized data elements in a design – i.e. if you are not using data items permitted through the environment configuration available for use by your assigned role, the release will fail. This prevents a 'loose cannon' approach to design and ensures adherence to and compliance with the working design environments determined centrally at the enterprise level. 


This dialog is accessed by performing the following steps:

  1. In the Outputs region of an OutJob file, click Add New Validation Output under Validation Outputs.
  2. Click Configuration compliance » Project.
  3. Right click on Environment configuration compliance check under Output Description.
  4. Click Configure.
