Access

The dialog is accessed from the Vaults panel by clicking Add an Item in the top right region then choosing Create Item or one of the available item types from the drop-down menu. 

Options/Controls

  • Item ID – the unique ID for this Item. The ID itself is typically a code in accordance with established naming conventions. For example, D-810-XXXX may be used to reflect a fabricated Blank Board Item, while D-820-XXXX may reflect an Assembled Board Item. The Item ID cannot be changed after the Item is released.

Schemes are defined in the Edit Revision Naming Schemes dialog, which can be accessed by clicking the  button at the right of the field. As schemes are chosen at the Item-level, you are free to have different schemes applied to different Items. The chosen Revision Naming Scheme cannot be changed after the Item is released.
  • Revision ID – the revision of the Item in accordance with the chosen revision naming scheme. This field is read-only.

The definitions are defined in the Edit Lifecycle Definitions dialog, which can be accessed by clicking the  button at the right of the field. As Lifecycle definitions are chosen at the Item-level, you are free to have different definitions applied to different Items. The chosen Lifecycle definition cannot be changed after the Item is released.
  • Revision State – the state of the revision of this Item specified in the Revision ID field. This field is read-only and newly created Items will always be set to Planned.
  • Revision Sharing - use this link to open the Permissions For Folder or Item dialog in which you can specify permissions for this item.
  • Comment – use this field to enter any further comments regarding this Item.
  • Description – use this field to enter a meaningful description of what is represented by this Item.
