Editing Digital Assets
When you open a digital asset, several configurations are available. A detailed description of each section available for configuration is described below.
The following fields are available for editing in the General tab of a digital asset:
If you click Set as context digital asset, the digital asset will record all the configuration items created and add them automatically to the list. The name of the digital asset will be displayed next to the Innovation Studio logo, .
To close the context digital asset, click Close Digital Asset.
This section tab houses all the components required for the digital asset to work, such as entities, form driven flows, entity views, scripts, configurations for the automation processors, and any other configurations made while the digital asset was set as context.
The section tab has three buttons above the grid. The Branch Digital Asset button merges two digital assets by transferring all the configuration items from one asset to the other. By clicking the button from the current asset, the configuration items will be moved to another asset and deleted from the currently displayed asset. For details, see Branching Digital Assets.
To add configuration items to the digital asset, click Add.
The Add Digital Asset Configuration Item page is displayed. The Type field allows you to select the type of configuration item:
- Action group
- Advanced analytics
- Business Data Model
- Business Entity
- Business Entity Extension
- Buisness Workflow
- Business Workflow Configurations
- Client Script library
- Code Blocks
- Configuration Data definition

- Entity View
- Formula Parameter Mapping
- Menu Item
- Option Set
- Portal Profile
- Server Automation Script
- Server Automation Script Library
- Style Sheet

- User Competence
- Web Api Cient Library
Once the type is selected, the system will automatically display the grid with the available configuration items.
To remove configuration items from the digital asset, click Remove and confirm. This action also removes child dependencies, such as when removing an entity, it removes the entity default view, attributes, default form, or relations. Once removed, the configuration item becomes unallocated and can be used by other digital assets.

Configuration Items Migration
Migration is the process of importing a deployment package (including deployment packages from prior releases that don't support configuration management) into an existing digital asset. This allows you to easily upgrade your legacy applications to take advantage of the configuration management capabilities available starting with release 21.2 (digital assets, digital solutions, digital solutions packages, etc.).
To migrate a deployment package, follow the steps:
- From the field Choose deployment package for migration, click the arrow and from the list, select the deployment package to migrate to.IMPORTANT!
You cannot migrate an obsolete digital asset. If you attempt to migrate an obsolete digital asset, a toast message is displayed to inform the user.
- Click Migrate. If the migration is successful, a grid will be displayed below the deployment package. From the grid, use the Export button to export records and see all deployment packages that were migrated.
