Move Maintenance Items Between Elements

A maintenance item you define for one element might be usefully moved to another if, for example, you are moving your model through stages in a lifecycle or, indeed, modeling a lifecycle. It is possible to simply drag a maintenance item of any type from either the appropriate tab of the Maintenance window or the 'Details' tab of the Inspector window, onto a different element on a diagram.

Access

From the Browser window, open the diagram containing the target element, then click on the element from which to move the tests. It is convenient to have both source and target elements on the same diagram, but it is possible to select the source element in the Browser window or on a different open diagram.

It is also convenient to have compartments enabled on the target element, with the Maintenance compartment selected, so that you can observe the addition of the moved item. (Right-click on the element and select 'Compartment Visibility', then select the 'Maintenance' checkbox.)

Ribbon

Start > Desktop > Design > Browser > Element - expand the 'Maintenance' category  or

Construct > Change Management > <item type> | Show <item type> Window

Keyboard Shortcuts

Alt+2 | Maintenance > <item type> tab

Click on the source element on a diagram : T

Move the Item to the Target Element

Click on the maintenance item that you intend to move, and simply drag it onto the target element. The item name will display in the 'maintenance' compartment of that element. What you would observe might resemble this illustration.
