9. Show History

Show History opens the PCM History window that lists the versions and data history of the selected entity that are on the Change Management server, e.g. if the project is selected, the PCM history window displays the history of the project; if a screen is selected, the PCM History window displays the history of the selected screen.

Important: Make sure the PCM History window is closed after logging out of Change Management through the Workbench.

Automatically generatedshort point IDs replace their corresponding long point IDs to display in History report lists.

Tip: You can list (and sort) the short point IDs in the Workbench right-pane next to their associated long point IDs.

Use the Field Chooserto select and position the field.
