Mark Component References For Regeneration

This Task will mark the component for regeneration based on a target file name.


Property NameDescription
TitleChanges the Title (not the name) of the Task.
File NameFull File Path (Including Extension) of the target referenced file location


When this Task is added the properties are static. To be able to build rules on a static property see How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property.

This example is designed to show the break down of the Rule you need to select a Specification model for a previously run Specification to mark the models for regeneration.

This is not the advised way of writing this Rule. Good practice would be to put the different elements of the rule into different Variables.

Depending on what your Rules for Specification name and Components File names are will determine the complexity of your Rule and whether you need to carry out any text formatting.
