8.5 Propagating Objects from the IBM i

Option 33=Propagate is available on all advanced work with panels:

Note that this option will only be visible if repository synchronization is enabled, that is, at least one repository group is defined.

When Option 33=Propagate has been selected for an object, a screen similar to this one will be displayed:


  DC_P644801 Propagate Object


  Partition: XXX Object:XXXXXXXXXX Extension: XXXXXXXXXX Type: XXXXXXXX





  Propagate to Work Group . . . . . . . . . . . __________



  Fnn=Help  Fnn=Exit  Fnn=Prompt  Fnn=Cancel  Fnn=Messages





The Propagate Object screen enables PC repositories to be updated with the latest definition of an object from the LANSA for i development environment. Typically, this request to propagate would be done after changes have been completed. The next time that the host monitor is run for the PC repository or if it is currently running, the object will be checked out for read only.

The Partition, Object, Extension and Type define which LANSA object for which propagation has been requested.

Propagate to Work Group

To propagate the latest definition of the object to all Work Groups, or if there are no Work Groups defined, specify *ALL.

To propagate the latest definition of the object to a single work group, specify the name of the Work Group.

Prompt with blank or partial Work Group to select from a list of matching Work Groups.
