The Repository tree view gathers all the technical items that can be used either to describe business models or to design Jobs. It gives access to any item including Business Models, JobDesigns, as well as reusable routines or documentation.

The Repository centralizes and stores all necessary elements for any Job design and business modeling contained in a project.

The figure below illustrates the elements stored in the Repository.

The Refresh button allows you to update the tree view with the last changes made.

The Activate filter button allows you to open the filter settings view so as to configure the display of the Repository view.

The Switch branch button is displayed when your Studio is connected to a remote project. It allows you to switch across project branches without the need of restarting your Studio. For further information, see Working with project branches and tags.

The Repository tree view stores all your data (Business, Jobs, Joblets) and metadata (Routines, DB/File connections, any meaningful Documentation and so on).

Note

It is possible to filter the nodes, Jobs or items listed in the Repository tree view in order to display only a selected group. For more information about filtering the tree view, see Filtering entries listed in the Repository tree view.

The table below describes the nodes in the Repository tree view.

Business Models

Under the Business Models node, are grouped all business models of the project. Double-click the name of the model to open it on the design workspace. For more information, see Designing a Business Model.

Contexts

The Contexts node groups files holding the contextual variables that you want to reuse in various Jobs, such as filepaths or DB connection details. For more information, see Using contexts and variables.

Code

The Code node is a library that groups the routines available for this project and other pieces of code that could be reused in the project. Click the relevant tree entry to expand the appropriate code piece.

For more information, see Managing routines.

SQL Templates

The SQL Templates node groups all system SQL templates and gives the possibility to create user-defined SQL templates. For more information, see Using SQL templates.

The Documentation node gathers all types of documents, of any format. This could be, for example, specification documents or a description of technical format of a file. Double-click to open the document in the relevant application. For more information, see How to generate HTML documentation.

Recycle bin

The Recycle bin groups all elements deleted from any node in the Repository tree view.

Note

The deleted elements are still present on your file system, in the recycle bin, until you right-click the recycle bin icon and select Empty Recycle bin.

Note

Expand the recycle bin to view any elements held within. You can action an element directly from the recycle bin, restore it or delete it forever by clicking right and selecting the desired action from the list.
