Register Reference Data Library

When you have a complete project set up, with fully defined reference data, it is possible to transfer the reference data via the RAS by setting an Asset that you can import into another repository. The exported data includes all instances of the selected data type in the project; for example, all defined cardinality values, or all Document Style Templates.
