Edit Custom Field Contexts

With the latest version of Configuration Manager, you can change the default deployment options for custom field contexts. Full documentation

 

When a modification in a custom field’s contexts (context added or existing context changed) is detected during configuration snapshot deployment, you can change the default matching between source and target contexts using a new EDIT FIELD CONTEXTS button.

 

Configuration Manager offers you to choose between the following context editing options:

  • merge source context with different target context

  • deploy context as new on target

  • merge source context with its matching target context
