Workbench Organizer

The Data Modeler is linked to the Workbench Organizer. This means that changes to modeling objects are logged and can be transported to other systems. The Workbench Organizer ensures that there is only one original version of an object. Only this original version of an object can be changed (in the system where it is located).

Interfaces to the Workbench Organizer when creating or changing objects

When you create a new object, a dialog box appears in which you are requested to assign an object to a development class. Select Save. A further dialog box is displayed. You can now select one of your existing requests or create a new request.

A dialog box also appears if you change an existing object and wish to save it. With this dialog box, you can select your own requests or create a new request.

If the new object is a test object, select Local object. Such local objects are not assigned to any request and cannot be transported.
