Generate

A Freezepoint can be characterized on the basis of the source of its content. There are four possible sources for a Freezepoint being described by the way they are generated.

Manual Scope

Formexit Generate on the Option Explorer and Selection Explorer screens will only be available for Freezepoints that are not bound to a Project-, Taskview- or Import scope. Generating a Freezepoint by using formexit Generate from one of the Explorer screens will open the Freezepoint Generation Scoping screen:

Manual Scope

Here you may specify the environment or pathcode to generate the Freezepoint from, which type of versions you wish to include in the scope as well as build include or exclude listings for version or object names that are wildcard enabled.

Project Scope

Using rowexit Freezepoint from the OMW Projects tab of the Version Workbench main screen will present two sequential dialogs to specify the source environment for the Processing Options and the source pathcode for the Data Selection and Data Sequencing. After these dialogs the following popup screen reports the number of versions it is about to generate Freezepoints for if you confirm to proceed with the generation by clicking the specified link:

After generation is finished this same popup screen will look like this:

Generation Completed Dialogue

The generated Freezepoint name is available in the clipboard for use when opening the Freezepoint of choice (Processing Options or Data Selection) in one of the Explorer screens.

Taskview Scope

Using rowexit Freezepoint from the Taskviews tab of the Version Workbench main screen will not present dialogs for source environment and pathcode selection since the source environment in the Taskviews tab screen is used for that purpose. The following popup screen reports the number of versions it will generate Freezepoints for if you confirm to proceed with the generation by clicking the specified link:

Generation starting

After generation is finished this same popup screen will look like this:

Taskview Freezepoint generation done

The generated Freezepoint name is available in the clipboard for use when opening the Freezepoint of choice (Processing Options or Data Selection) in one of the Explorer screens.
