General Page

An object definition consists of several pages. The General page is available for all objects. As a developer and object designer, on the General page you define the basic object information and apply custom values to it that you can later use for filtering.

The General page of executable objects contains the following two sub pages:

If you have the necessary privileges, the General page has a further sub page: Object Authorizations. For more information, see Authorizations Page.

Note: The variables icon indicates that the input field can be populated using variables. For more information, see Inserting Variables/VARA Objects in Objects and Scripts.

This page includes the following:

Accessing the General Page

After adding an object, the object definition pages open to the object-specific page. Click the General tab on the left pane to open the General page.

Object Info Section

The only settings you can change here are:

History Section

Audit information on the object. More detailed information on the object revisions is available on the Version Management Page.

Metadata Section

Some of the fields in this section are not available for certain object types.

Extended Reports Section (Executable Objects Only)

The Automation Engine has a comprehensive auditing functionality that includes the possibility to produce extended reports for executable objects in addition to the standard ones.

When configuring your system, the administrator can write specifications in the UC_CLIENT_SETTINGS variable that determine whether or not they should be created. If so, this variable also determines which reports should be created. This applies client-wide.

Here you define whether these settings should be applied to this object or if you want to overrule them:
