To create a repository:

  1. Log into the EnterWorks Classic UI.

  1. Open the Repositories tab by opening the Feature Bar, opening the Model tab, and selecting Repositories. The Repositories tab will open.

  2. From the list of folders displayed at the top of the pane, select the folder where you would like the repository to be stored.

  3. On the Repositories tab Activity Bar, open the Action drop-down and select New. A New Repository window will appear.

  1. Edit the new repository’s configuration options as desired.

  • Name: (Required) Name of the new repository. Do not include special characters in the name, such as & < > ".

  • Description: A description of the new repository.

  • Profile: (Required) The Profile to be used to define the new repository.

  • Pre-Staging/Staging/Production: If this repository will be used in a Pre-Staging(optional)/Staging/Production sequence, indicate which one of these the repository will be. Otherwise, leave the field empty.

  • Repository Type:

    • Hierarchy Catalog Repository View: Shows all the records from a Hierarchy properties repository.

    • Web Product Root: Pertains only to the Split/Clone functionality. Enables the Split/Clone menu option from the Action menu on repository.

    • Web Product: Pertains only to the Split/Clone functionality. Enables the Clone menu option on the Action menu.

    • Option Type: Pertains only to the Split/Clone functionality. Allows a user to select multiple variant attributes to split or to enter a count for cloning a product repository record.

    • Option: Pertains only to the Split/Clone functionality.

    • <empty>: If the repository is not one of the types listed above, leave the field empty.

  • Show Tab: Whether or not the repository’s name will appear in the Feature Bar.

  • Tab Name: (Required) The name of the repository’s tab when it is opened in a Repository View and the name that will appear in the Feature Bar if Show Tab is selected.

  • Sequence: (Required) The sequence object to be used to track record sequence numbers. Repositories can share sequence objects, which means that each record in the repositories has a unique sequence number across all the repositories using that object. Either select an already defined sequence or click the Manage button to define a new sequence:

    • Name: (Required) The name of the sequence.

    • GTIN Prefix: If you want your sequence number to be an auto-generated GTIN then put your GTIN prefix here.

    • Starting Sequence: (Required) The first number in the sequence.

    • Current Max Sequence: This is a displayed value only; not a configuration option. It displays what is currently the highest number in the sequence.

  • Auto-Generate Sequence: If selected, when a record is created, its sequence number will be automatically generated. If not selected, when a record is created, its sequence number must be manually entered.

  • Derive Indicator Digit: Deprecated – no longer in use. Depending on the release version of your EnterWorks system, this configuration option may not appear.

  • Transmission Option: Defines the method of transmitting data exported from the repository, such as the protocol used, modifications to the resulting file name, destination, and any necessary destination-imposed user authentication. Transmission options can be used by more than one repository. Either select an already defined transmission option, or click the Manage button to define a new option.

  1. When you have finished editing the configuration options, select Next. The New Repository Attribute Configuration window will appear. Edit the repository attribute properties as desired.
