These are three states which indicate where a project or analysis is located in the business process.
Development - is the default state when a project or analysis is created. It is intended to indicate that the project or analysis is being developed
Production - is intended to indicate that a project or analysis is ready to be used for production work.
Closed - is intended to indicate that a project or analysis is no longer in use. The project or analysis is locked, and only certain actions can be performed by users
Development is the lowest state, and closed is the highest state. You can select any state at any time. However, because an analysis is contained in a project, certain conditions control the state of a project and its analyses.
For example, an analysis cannot be set to the development state if the project is in the production state. If you set the analysis to a state lower than the project, the state of the project changes to the lower state. Likewise, if you set the project to a state higher than any of its analyses, the states of the analyses change to the higher state.
Development State - The development state should be selected when the following factors affect a project or analysis:
Production State - The production state should be selected when the following factors affect a project or analysis:
Closed State - The closed state prevents the following actions to be performed in the repository:
