The component versioning option allows the Author to add a new version to their components each time an update is required.
Each time a component is updated, a new version is generated.
Each time a component is updated, the previous version remains visible for all users until the new version is curated and published.
Only the latest version of the component is made available for users to download.
A list of previous versions will be kept available for users with higher roles only.
When versions are updated, the users who have downloaded the application are informed about the changes.
When versions are updated, the collaborators assigned to an idea (that the component is part of) are notified about the change.
To upload a new version for a component follow the steps below:
- Access the Component Profile page.
- Click Edit Component.
- The component form becomes editable. Apply the necessary changes.
- In the Upload Component section upload the new File and/or Source versions of the component and update the Release Notes.
- Click Submit.
- The component curation process is triggered.
As soon as the new version of the component is published this is updated in the component profile page along with the Version History and the Release Notes.
To view the video version of this process please access Video Tutorials section > Workspace > Upload Components and Update their Version.
For each published component the users have the option to Report Bug or Report Abuse. If such a report is submitted a task is created and assigned to the component producer. Please access My Tasks for details.
