Creating a CDRL or SDRL
You can create a new CDRL or SDRL package from the Packages table, which appears on the Packages page for each application context. You can also create a package from the Add to Package window, which is available when the Add to Package action is selected from the actions menu of an object.
The New Package window divides the creation of a new package into the following steps:
If your site has security labels enabled, you may see the Set Security Labels step. For more information about setting security labels, see Setting Security Labels while Creating an Object.
1. Set Attributes
a. If there are multiple package types available to you, you can select one from the Type list. Depending on your selection, the steps on the New Package window may change. Choose CDRL or SDRL from the Type list. If you are creating a package or technical data package, see Creating a Package. If you are creating a replication package, see Creating a Replication Package.
b. Depending on your settings, you may be able to select a domain for the package. A domain is an administrative area that defines a set of policies, such as access control, indexing, and notification. Packages, like folders, are associated with a domain and are subject to the access control policies defined for the domain. To select a domain other than the default setting, click Find.
When selecting a domain, you will not be able to view its policies. To view the access policies, navigate to the Policy Administration utility.
c. Depending on your settings, you may be able to select an organization identifier for the package, such as a CAGE code or DUNS number. Click the find icon to select the organization identifier.
The display of organization information and its format depends on your system configuration. As CDRL and SDRL packages are only available in Windchill Aerospace and Defense CDRL/SDRL, CAGE Code, and Unincorporated Change, the format is assumed to be CAGE Code.
d. In the Package Attributes section, complete the applicable fields.
Set the unique identifier for the CDRL or SDRL. Depending on your site configuration, the number may be automatically generated. The number can be up to 32 characters.
Specify a name for the CDRL or SDRL.
