LANSA propagation is for the Visual LANSA environment so the IDE’s on everyone’s PC will have the new objects that your co-workers have created or modified and have been promoted.
Using “LANSA PCMAINT” you can see the PC’s that are being used for LANSA’s VL IDE, some may be very old and can be removed.
There is an option to use WorkGroups, which are for smaller teams that need to be in sysnc with each other but not all the developers. I can’t think of a reason to use this, so you should be able to leave this blank.
Now Repository Groups are so that any PC in this group will be propagated too. This is where you add PC Nodes for Propagation.
So you have added all your PC’s to the Repository Group and created a new field on your IDE and checked it in, AND PROPAGATION STILL DOES NOT WORK?
Think of Propagation assignments like creating a TASK on the iseries, in order for your PC to get Propagated your need to do a SYSTEM INITIALIZATION.
Makes sense, would have been nice to see this in the Docs.
Another way to see who on your team is ignoring you and still has not initialized their IDE, you can look at DC@FPP in the interal LANSA Data base.
