Using the Windchill RV&S administration client
The Windchill RV&S administration client allows you to manage Access Control Lists (ACLs), manage and distribute ViewSets, set up workflows and documents, configure configuration management policies, and send alert messages through a GUI. The client interface provides a single, centralized access point for the most common administration tasks.
A graphical user interface, or GUI, is a program interface that uses a number of visual components (such as icons, pointers, and pull-down menus) to execute commands. Working in a GUI allows the user to give instructions to the computer without having to learn a specific command language. The Windchill RV&S administration client interface is a GUI designed for carrying out most administrative commands from a central location.
In addition, you can connect to multiple Windchill RV&S servers in a single session and perform maintenance on each server.
Ensure the Windchill RV&S administration client and server versions match. Administrative operations are not supported when using an client that is a different version than the server version.
If multiple administrators are working in the Permissions views, changes are updated dynamically as the server refreshes the changed view each time it is newly accessed by another user.
If two administrators are concurrently editing the same entry, the view cannot be updated and the system processes the changes that are received first.
