The table below summarizes the settings and components that make up a model’s structural information. It also explains any exceptions that are treated as production data.
Use the tables below as a reference when you work with model data.
Changes to a model’s structural information are:
- Captured by adding revision tags.
- Included when synchronizing changes to a compatible target model.
- Included when comparing one revision tag with another.
- Not allowed when a model is in Deployed mode.
The data below are production data:
|History and Saved History Exports||None|
|Imports and import data source (IDS) definitions|
If an import is marked as production data, these attributes are treated as production data:
If an IDS definition is marked as production data, these attributes are treated as production data:
Newly created production IDS definitions and imports can be synced from a source to a target model. For example, from your development to your production model. After the initial sync, only renamed or deleted IDS definitions or imports are included in a sync.
|Line item subsets||None|
|Lists (not set as production lists)||None|
|Modules and saved views||Cell values are production data.|
These elements of production lists are production data:
Additionally, if selective access is enabled on a production list, the Read or Write access for particular users is production data.
If selected as the List format of a non-production list, a production list is treated as production data. As a result, list items aren't sychronized between models.
|Time||The value of Current Period is production data.|
|Workflow||Workflow states for list items in workflow-enabled lists.|
All available options on the main Users tab in Model Settings > Users > Users, are treated as production data.
The following table describes how users can interact with structural information when working in models in Deployed mode.
|Structural Information||In models in Deployed mode, end users and Workspace Administrators can…|
|Actions||Run actions from dashboards, including processes, imports, or exports.|
|Modules and saved views|
Update cell values manually or by importing data.
Change the formatting and appearance of saved views (for example, by pivoting dimensions) but cannot save any changes.
|Line items||Set up, enable, or disable conditional formatting for line items, but cannot save any changes.|
Interact with dashboard elements, but cannot save any changes.
Caution: Although Dashboard Designer is available in models in Deployed mode, users are prevented from saving any changes.
|History||View and export the model's change history, but cannot save the export as an Action for later use. In the History dialog, the Save Options checkbox is unavailable.|
Change the contents and property values of production lists as detailed in the Structural Information Reference table above.
