Options page

Field Description Rules and guidelines

Branch

Select this option if you want Dimensions to add a period before the new revision number when creating the first new revision in this project for an existing item.

For example, if the revision number of an existing item is 2, the first new revision in this project will be 2.1, and the next, 2.2 etc. (The first revision number of a new item created in this project however, will be 1, and the next, 2 etc.)

Do not branch

Select this option if you want Dimensions to increment the last revision number by 1 when creating the first new revision in this project for an existing item.

Note: it is recommended that you use this option, and that you use a single assigned branch.

For example, if the revision number of an existing item is 2, the first new revision in this project will be 3, and the next, 4, etc.

Allow user to override default revision number

Select this option if you want the user to be able to change the revision number that is automatically generated by Dimensions when creating new item revisions.

 

Use item type settings

Select this option if you want items in this project to obey the CM rules as defined for their item types.

The default is the setting defined for the project type in the Administration Console.

Always enabled

Select this option if you want items in this project to behave as if the CM rules defined for their item types are all enabled regardless of whether they are enabled in the Administration Console.

 

Always disabled

Select this option if you want items in this project to behave as if the CM rules defined for their item types are all disabled.

 

Request required to refactor

Select this option if you want to require the user to provide a request ID when they make refactoring changes to the project.

 

Use local stages

  • If you select this option, the stage of an item revision in this project/stream is not affected when the same item revision is promoted/demoted to another stage as a result of activities in any other project/stream.

  • If you do not select this option, when an item revision in any project/stream is promoted/demoted to another stage, then the stage of the same item revision in this project/stream will also be updated.
