5 Working with Change Table Configurations

This chapter contains the following topics:

5.1 Understanding Change Table Revisions

If you need to revise or add change tables, you can build and submit change table configurations to a software master after you have created the software master. Disregard this task if you have not yet created the software master. If the template that you select for the software master requires change tables, the software master will build the change tables that you specify during the setup of the software master definition.

5.2 Working with Change Table Configurations

You copy change table configurations from one master definition to another master definition. This process copies all change table configurations associated with the master from which you are copying.
