Structure of the default.xml File

Inventory and versions statuses are defined in the default.xml file. You can modify the supplied values for both types as well as add your own values. If you modify the file, restart the server in order to see your changes.

Here an example of default.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<status-scheme name="Default">
<status name="Active" color="#8DD889" unique="true" />
<status name="Staged" color="#80D8FF" />
<status name="Latest" color="#F6F4D8" unique="true" />
<status name="Passed Tests" componentRoleName="StatusAdder" color="#FFDDAA" />
<status name="Archived" color="#AAAAAA" />

Each <status/> element has a required name attribute and several optional ones, defined in the following table:

<status> Attributes table

unique Boolean value (true|false). Only one component version with this status/attribute will be deployed to the environment.

While you can add as many values as you like, you cannot create new status types (only inventory- and version-statuses are supported). Additionally, all values must be defined in default.xml.
