Note that the Version page is visible from wherever you launch the CAST Delivery Manager Tool. See CAST Delivery Manager Tool modes.
The Version page enables you to manage all aspects of your Version.
|Version name||Field||Displays the name of your Version. You can modify the name of your existing Version in this page if required:|
The new version name can then be seen in the CAST Management Studio (Application editor > Delivery tab) after using the Refresh option. For other Delivery Managers working via the CAST AIC Portal, a Refresh/Refresh All will be required so that the change is downloaded to their local CAST Delivery Manager Tool workspace.
Note that you can only change the Version name when the Delivery State of the Version is:
|View delivery report||This option will generate an XML based report listing all items in the delivery, for example:|
The report will open with the default application assigned to open XML files. The report will only contain information once the Package action has been run.
This report is to be used to check the delivery.
For internal usage. This value represents the path of the version folder, relative to the data directory of the Delivery folder. It speeds up access to the correct location in the Delivery folder.
|Delivery State||Displays the status of the Version. Please see Version status for more information. This field is read-only.|
|Copied from version||Indicates the Version that was copied to create the current Version - if applicable. See Add a new version for more information. This field is read-only.|
If no previous version is displayed in this field, then you either have only one version, or you have chosen not to base your current version on an existing version (see Add a new version for more information about this).
|Version date||Displays the Version's date of release as specified when you add a new version. This field is read-only - it is not possible to modify the date of release.|
|Content state||Indicates the status of the Version's content. For example:|
|Action required||Indicates what CAST suggest you do next based on the content of the Current state column.|
|First Package Date||Indicates the date and time the Version was first packaged. If the Version has not yet been packaged, then nothing is displayed. This field will always show the very first date/time the package action was run on the Version - even if multiple package actions have been run.|
As such, you can use this to manage the source code that will be included in the current Version.
|Use this button to Add a new source code package.|
|Use this button to Edit a Source package - the Source package page will be displayed enabling you to make the changes you require.|
|Use this button to Remove a Package.|
Remember that when using the CAST Delivery Manager Tool via the CAST AIC Portal you are always working locally until you use the Deliver action to upload any changes to the CAST AIC Portal (i.e. to the Source Code Delivery Folder). As such, if you have made changes and you have not used the Deliver action, these changes will be lost on removing the Source Code Package.
If you have:
|Use these icons to change the order in which the source code packages are packaged (when using the Package action at Version level). This is useful when Packaging multiple Packages and the same resource can be found in multiple Packages - you can designate the order in which these resources are discovered to avoid the generation of alerts for missing resources (for example).|
|Use this option to run the Package action on all child source code packages of the current Version.|
|Location||Displays the physical location of the Source code package - this could be a file folder, a database or an SCM system. This is determined when you Add a new source code package.|
|Name||Displays the name given to the Source code package when it was created. See Add a new source code package for more information.|
|Content state||Indicates the status of the Source code package's content. For example:|
|Action required||Indicates what CAST suggest you do next based on the content of the Content state column.|
|Detailed report on files found||Displays a status message about the report on found files (see option below). When the report is ready to be generated, the status will say "Ready to export".|
|Generate report on found files|
This option allows you to export the list of extracted files to a CSV file:
The report contains a list of files found during the packaging action, for example:
By default the CAST Delivery Manager Tool will suggest a filename based on the following rule:
This file will automatically be saved at the root of the Delivery folder.
You can manually modify the filename (but the extension will always revert to .CSV) and also use the Browse button to choose an alternative location in which to save the file.
