Create an empty project

This section describes how to create an empty project.

To create an empty project:

  1. Open Web Administration. Click the Projects tab.

  2. Click Create Project to open the Create Project wizard.

  3. In the Choose Type step, select the Create an empty project option, and click Next.

  4. In the Add Details step, enter the project name, and select the domain where you want to create the project.

    The project name cannot be longer than 30 characters and can include only letters, digits, and underscores.

    Note: Support of non-English characters depends on the database settings used by the server. To avoid any possible issues, do not use non-English characters in project names.

  5. Click Next.

  6. Under Database Type, select Oracle or MS-SQL.

  7. Under DB Server, specify Server Name, DB Admin User, and DB Admin Password.

    By default, these fields are given default values. If additional database servers are defined, you can select another name from the Server Name list.

    For details about defining database servers, see Defining New Database Servers.

  8. Click Create as Unicode to create the project as Unicode.

    Note: The Create as Unicode check box is only displayed when creating an empty project in an MS-SQL server. Unicode is a feature of MS-SQL that allows multi-language support. In Oracle, multi-language support is defined when installing the server.

  9. Click Next.

    If your selected database server does not have the text search feature enabled, a message box opens. The message indicates that after this process completes, you can enable the text search feature. For details on enabling the text search feature, see Configuring Text Search.

  10. (For SaaS only) In the Create in TableSpace field, select a tablespace where this project is created. In the Temporary TableSpace field, select a temporary tablespace. Click Next.

  11. In the Add Project Administrators step, select administrators for the project.

    Project administrator users can add and manage other users in the project.

    To add administrators for the project, select the users from the All Users list, and click .

    To delete administrators, select the users from the Selected Users list, and click .

  12. Click Next.

  13. In the Select Extensions step, select the extensions to activate for the project.


    • You cannot disable an extension for a project after you enable it. We recommend enabling only the extensions you need. Enabling extra extensions can affect performance and consumes additional disk space.

    • As you navigate from one extension to another, relevant license status information is displayed in the License Status section.

      Extensions for which there is no license on the server are displayed in gray. It is possible to enable an extension for which you do not yet have a license. You can utilize the extension's added functionality later, after receiving the license.

  14. Click Next.

  15. In the Summary step, verify the details of the project you want to create.

    Activate Project: Select it to activate the project. Only activated projects are available to users in the Application Lifecycle Management Login window when they log in to a project. You can also activate or deactivate a project after creating it. For details, see Deactivate or activate a project .

    Enable Versioning: Select it to enable version control for the project. You can also enable versioning for a project after creating it. For details, see Enable or disable version control for a project.

  16. Click Create.
