Edit Transition Rule Template or Edit Transition Script Dialog Box

The Edit Transition Script dialog box allows you to modify an existing transition script.

The Edit New Transition Rule Template dialog box allows you to modify the properties of an existing transition rule template.



Rules and Guidelines


Modify the name of the transition rule template.

This field appears only in the Edit Transition Rule Template dialog box.

Preferred build tool

Select the build tool to be used to execute the transition.

If you do not want to specify a build tool, select Undefined.

In the Edit Transition Script dialog box, this field is called Build Tool.

Select the script type

Select the script type to be used to build the target.

Select one of the following:

  • Input script content manually

In the Script Content field type the content of the script to be executed when this transition rule is run, or modify the existing script. To wrap the text select the Word Wrap check box.

  • Use Dimensions-controlled file as a script

Do the following:

a    Click Browse. The Select File from Dimensions dialog box appears.

b    In the left pane, expand Projects or Baselines and browse for the directory containing the file.

c     In the right pane select the file.

d    Click OK. The file is added to the Edit Transition Rule Template dialog box.

Note: If you are using a work area the file will be pushed to the build area. If you are using a deployment area, Dimensions Build assumes that the script has already been deployed to that area.

  • Use a file in the build area as a script

Type the name of a script or template in your build area, or modify the existing name.

  • Same as build configuration global script

When you use a transition that has this script type the target is built using the main script defined for the parent build configuration. However, you can specify build options for the transition that are different to those defined in the main script. Therefore the build options that are used are those defined in the transition and not the main script.
