MDG-F Replication Timing

I am confused by the parameters (options) used in Edition and Change Request.

During Edition creation, there are three options we can pick and use to control as to when we want replication to occur.

option 1 - Manaully started after release of Edition

option 2 - On final approval of change request.

option 3 - Selected in each change request

However, during Change Request creation, it has only two option 1 and 2. Option 3 is not included there.

Then my question is - What option MDG-F will really go if I choose option 2 in Edition and choose option 1 in Change Request?

Would there be any document that shows the difference across these 3 options and configuration steps of each option?

Thanks,

LUO

    Hi Luo,

    it is correct that there are three options while definining the edition. The part you miss is that the option you select for your edition surely has some impacts on the change request. This is best explained with some examples:

    Edition A defines option 1 - manually start after release of edition. Each CR that you create for this edition will use exactly this option. In other words, the related selection field of the replication will be read-only. You cannot distribute the data immediately after the release of the CR.

    Edition B defines option 2 - on finall approval of CR. Each CR that you create for this edition exactly use this option. In other words, the related selection field of the replication will be read-only. You will always distribute the data immediately after the release of the CR.

    Edition C defines option 3 - selected in each CR. Each CR that you create in this edition will have an enabled replication timing field. You can decide on the level of the CR, if you want to replicate the data of the CR immediately or after the release of the edition.

    Best regards

    Michael

      I see your point now that some customers don't like to be tied with the chosen option 1 or option 2 some one made during Edition create process and rather they want to make their own choise during CR create. That''s why this option 3 come into design. Correct?
