Creating Baselines

This topic details the basics of creating new Baselines of model Packages. You can create Baselines in the model (using the 'Baselines' dialog) or in a Reusable Asset Service Registry (using the 'Reusable Asset Service - Baseline' view). The appropriate screen displays by default according to whether the 'Store Package Baselines in a Reusable Asset Service Registry' checkbox is selected on the 'Baselines' page of the 'Manage Project Options' dialog.


Select a Package in the Browser window, then open the appropriate screen for the storage system using one of the methods outlined here.
