Enabling/disabling the automatic update of a configuration

Enabling the automatic update option allows to update and build the configuration automatically with the newly imported metadata after a manual or scheduled model import, depending on your license edition. By default, this option is enabled in the user preferences.

Before you begin

You have been assigned an object role with the Metadata Management capability.


  1. Click the avatar icon in the upper right corner.
  2. Click Preferences from the menu.
  3. Select the Update the configuration automatically when importing new version of a model check box to enable the option or clear the check box to disable the option.
    • With the Standard license edition, the automatic update occurs on the configuration after a manual or scheduled model import.
    • From the Advanced license edition, the automatic update occurs on the current configuration after a manual import. If the model is not in the current configuration, it will be added. You can also enable the Set new versions as default option in the import options to automatically set any new imported version of a model as the default version.
  4. Click APPLY.
