Some views and meta model constructs in SystemWeaver are managed as SystemWeaver Features. When a feature is installed, the related meta model constructs will be created automatically by the client and all users will have the ability to use the corresponding tool views in the SystemWeaver client. One type of available features is the installation of the SystemWeaver standard meta data for a number of config items:  


Name
Description
Config Item SID
Configurable XML generators
XML config items defined using the XMLs view. The definition is stored in an XML type attribute "Definition" with SID = XMXM.
XXML
Configurable add part
XML config items for Add Part grids used in the Open item dialog to provide recommendations to users when adding parts in the current context. The definition is stored in an XML type attribute "Definition" with SID = GRXM.
XAPG

Configurable charts

XML config items for configurable charts defined using the Charts view. The definition is stored in an XML type attribute "Definition" with SID = CHXM.
XCHT
Configurable graph

XGRP
Configurable grids

XGRD
Configurable reports
XML config items for configurable reports defined using the Reports view. The definition is stored in an XML type attribute "Definition" with SID = ATRX.
JIRT

This article describes how to install config item meta data. This would typically be done when a new server is being implemented, however, SystemWeaver's config item meta data can be installed at any time, as needed. 


Prerequisites

  • Assignment of the SW Architect role in the database
  • An installation of the SystemWeaver Explorer (swExplorer)


SystemWeaver features are installed using the swExplorer client. 

  1. Navigate to File > Configure the explorer
  2. Select the Features tab. 
  3. Select the config meta data type that you want to install (see list above). 
  4. Click Create metadata. The metadata is now installed and items of the installed config item type can now be created in the server.


Uninstalling a Feature

The only way to uninstall config item meta data is to remove the specific meta model construct (item and attribute) using the swArchitect client.
