Updating previous versions of topics, images, and resources

You can apply changes made in a new object version back to another version.

For example, let's say that version 2 of Task1 should also be applied to version 1 (MapA v1). You then simply update version 2 of Task1 to version 1, as shown below:

When version 2 of Task1 is updated to version 1, IXIASOFT CCMS Desktop updates Container_v1 so that KeyB now references Version 2 of the topic.

To update an object to another version:

  1. Right-click the object that you want to update and select IXIASOFT Dynamic Release Management > Update to.
    The Update with dialog is displayed. It lists the versions that contain the object:
    Merge window
  2. Select the version that you want to update and click OK.

    The object is updated.

    Tip: If the update results in orphans (objects that are not referenced by any other object in the repository), the orphaned objects appear in the Replace with Objects in Versions dialog box. To perform other operations on the orphans, click the Locate button. This opens a list of the objects in the Search Results view.
