Advanced Schema Settings Dialog Box

Use the Advanced Schema Settings dialog box to specify which files in the specified folders should actually replicate when the schedule is run.

To display this dialog box:

Click Advanced in the Schema dialog box.

Replicate only the latest version

Replicates only the most recent version if a file has multiple versions that are not yet replicated to a server.

For example, if versions 5 through 10 are not yet replicated to server B, enabling this option replicates only version 10. Without this option enabled, versions 5 thru 10 are replicated when the schedule runs.

Replicate only files with revisions

Replicates the file versions that have an Enterprise PDM revision assigned.

For example, if version 4 has revision A and version 7 has revision B, enabling this option only replicates versions 4 and 7 when the schedule runs.

Include children when replicating

By default, only files stored under the specified folders set up in the schema are replicated by the schedule. Any files not under the specified folders are not replicated automatically.

With this option enabled, the schedule also includes all referenced files to a file stored under the specified folder of the schema.

For example, consider a schema that is set to replicate only files under \Projects folder. The vault contains an assembly file that references two part files under the \Library folder. With this option enabled, those two part files will also be replicated when the schema is run, even though the \Library folder is not part of the replication schema.

Only replicate files in the following states

Includes only files that are currently in the specified workflow states.

Select a workflow and state in the drop-down list and click Add. Any file versions not in the specified state are not replicated.

Stop replication after

By default, once a scheduled replication starts it processes all files and versions not yet replicated to the server. The files are added to a queue and are replicated until the queue is empty.

To stop the replication process after a set length of time, you can enable this option and specify when the replication should stop.

Any files not yet processed after that period are added to the queue for replication the next time a schema is set to start.

If a client retrieves a modified file before the next time the schema runs, the file is replicated immediately by on-demand replication.
