The ability to compare data from different viewpoints is an integral part of being able to synchronize data across applications.


Node type converters are needed to compare nodes of different node types across two viewpoints in side by side layout.

You can compare viewpoints interactively (see Running Viewpoint Comparisons), or for comparisons that you run frequently you can create a Compare Profile (see Creating, Editing, and Deleting Compare Profiles) to save the parameters in a reusable profile that can be run by users with access to both viewpoints.

Compare profiles also enable you to filter the nodes being compared by defining a node expression.
