DriveWorks Pro 16: Archive Specification [send feedback...]

Archive Specification

The Archive Specification Task, when applied, will hide the selected specification from view in the specification explorer.

An example of this in use can be seen in the Default Specification Flow. It is available as an operation on the Completed State.

Once a specification is archived it can be viewed by clicking the Show Archived button in the command bar of the specification explorer window.

When using the Archive Specification task take care that it cannot be applied during a running state or on a paused state that needs to transition to a running state, unless it is required to do so.
