This content applies to IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3.5.1 and higher.
IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3.5.1 introduced the ability to track metadata for high-level objects via revisions and object labeling. The high-level objects whose metadata is revisioned include business objects, forms, modules, queries/reports, UX metadata, and workflows. Changes that are made to high-level objects are captured in revisions. In addition to revision capabilities, these objects contain an identifier called an object label. The process of identifying the objects is called object labeling.
Starting in IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3.5.2, the metadata for these additional objects is now revisioned and labeled: Navigation collections, navigation items, portals, portal sections, and security groups.
One benefit of identifying objects and tracking revisions to the objects is that it is easier to target and compare the updates that IBM makes to objects in new versions of the TRIRIGA applications with the changes that customers make to the objects or that services teams make on the customer’s behalf. The process of identifying and tracking revisions will aid in upgrading your TRIRIGA applications.
In the long run, it will be much easier to keep track of changes that are made to objects as eventually, objects will no longer have to be copied and renamed. You will be able to modify the actual object and an object revision will be created at the Save or Revise/Publish state depending upon the object type.
