Openmake Build Configuration Type

In Dimensions Build a build configuration type specifies the options that are unique to a particular build configuration and are required to run a build. Dimensions Build includes a build configuration type called Openmake that has a number of pre-defined variables. You can configure these options to suit your build environment. The variables are inputs to Openmake build templates. For details about the templating language and the Openmake build templates, see the Developer’s Reference.

If you select the Openmake type when you create a new build configuration, Dimensions Build automatically populates the build configuration and the build areas with the build options required to perform an Openmake build. After you have created the build configuration you can review and edit the build options; for example, you can change the location of an Openmake installation on a build node.
