Completing the Tab Approval Process
While certain tabs are common to all asset types, the specific Asset Editor tabs for any asset are determined by the configuration of the Type template to which the asset is assigned on submission. Similarly, the metadata elements that appear on any tab are also determined by the Type configuration. While the specific tabs and elements may vary from Type to Type, the approval process for each tab involves the entry and/or review of the information in each element.
Every asset in Oracle Enterprise Repository
has an Administration tab. Use the Administration tab to:
- Track the asset Created, Submitted, Accepted workflow.
- Assign users to review and approve information on the other tabs.
- Change the asset's status:
- View assets notes and reviews.
Click the Register button to complete the registration process. Note: A registered asset can include unapproved tabs.
Completing the Registration Process
- Click Save in the File menu.
Adding a Note to the Asset
- Click Add Note in the Asset Editor File menu. The Add a Note for... dialog is displayed.
- Enter the appropriate information in the text box.
- Click OK. The note is added to the list in the Logs section on the asset's Administration tab. (It may be necessary to click the Refresh button in the Logs section.)
