The configuration structure is displayed as a tree in the Configuration window.
The root object properties describe the business task properties. The managed application module, external connection module, session module, and ordinary application module are also linked to this object.
Configuration objects reside in the branches. The number of objects in each branch is not limited.
In most cases, you can create an object by selecting Actions - Add from the menu.
To view and edit object properties, use the property palette (click an object and then, on the main menu, point to Edit and click Properties). Or open the edit window by selecting Actions - Edit from the menu. The edit window is not available for some configuration objects.
You can search an object for references to other objects by clicking Actions - Find references in object. You can search the entire configuration for references that point to a specific object by clicking Actions - Find references to object.
You can filter objects by subsystems by selecting Actions - By subsystems from the menu.
To view only objects that you locked in the configuration repository, click Actions - Locked objects.
Quick search for configuration objects by multiple substrings separated by spaces is available. Enter the substrings in the search field at the top of the Configuration window. The search is started once you enter two characters that are not spaces. The search is performed in object names, synonyms, and comments.
When the quick search is in effect, the tree only shows objects that match the search criteria and their parent objects.
Matching object name parts are displayed in red.
Objects that have the search string in their synonyms or comments have no marking.
Names of objects whose subordinate objects match the search criteria are displayed in gray.
To clear the search string, click the Clear button or press Esc.
Note. While the search is in effect, adding a configuration object that does not match the search criteria cancels the search.
You can switch to the search field by pressing Ctrl+Alt+M.
