DCO 3.2 - Using the DCO Enable Application Wizard

Updated on June 10, 2020

The DCO Enablement wizard allows you to add or update requirements, use cases, actors and work types to an existing application that is either partially  DCO enabled or not at all.

Enabling an application through this wizard allows you to leverage the other Direct Capture capabilities - Document Wizard, Application Profiler, and Application Accelerator - as you plan and build out new functionality and extensions.

The wizard is structured to guide you through a series of input steps that prompt you for information about the following elements of your application:

  • Requirements
  • Actors
  • Work Types
  • Use Cases

Launching the Wizard

From the menu bar on the developer portal, select one of these options:

  • From the Application menu, select Direct Capture of Objectives > Enable this Application
  • From the File menu, select Open > All Wizards to open an existing enablement instance from a list of open and resolved records



Stepping Through the Process

When the wizard starts, a unique object prefixed with UA- is created and the list of steps you take to enable the application is displayed on the left side of the screen.

Note:  The wizard defaults information from and enables your current application and version.  If you want to enable a different application, log on to that application before using the wizard.

Steps are:


  • Getting Started -  selects the RuleSet and Version where you want to save the updates  
  • Requirements  -  displays existing requirements you can update and/or add to the list
  • Actors – displays existing actions you can update and/or add to the list
  • Work Types – displays existing work types you can update and/or add to the list;  defines the work types and use case categories of the individual work types
  • Review Application -- allows you to review the updates that will be made to the application  

For each input step:

    1. Enter the data.

Click a step to display a pop-up help window similar to the one below that describes how to complete the step.

  1. Click Next >> to move to the next step.
  2. Click on a step at any time to return to that step or click << Back to return to the previous step.
  3. Click Save at any time to save your input. You can open the wizard later to add information to steps as you iterate through the process of gathering data and requirements.
  4. Click Cancel to cancel the wizard and resolve it with a status of Resolved-Withdrawn.


 Reviewing the Application

The Review Application step lists the updates and additions to requirements and use case rules and application details that will be generated based on your input.
If you want to update any of the input data prior to enabling the application, click the step you want to update or click <<Back to return to the previous screen. When finished, click the Review Application step to review your changes.


Enabling the Application

From the Review Application step:

  • Click Enable to update the application.

As it updates the application, an animated processing symbol tracks the build process and updates the status of the updates. A displays when an update is complete. If an update cannot be made, a warning message appears. Typically, a warning message indicates a duplicate record in the system.

At the end of this process:


  • The Details tab of the application record is updated with changes to Actors, Work Types and Supporting Work Types
  • Requirement rules are added or updated and linked to the application for display in the Requirements tab of the application rule
  • Use case rules are added or updated and linked to the application for display in the Use Cases tab of the application rule


 When the build completes, click Finish to resolve the object and display a confirmation screen.

Click Finish to exit the wizard or click Restore Application to undo the updates and restore the application to its previous version.


Restoring the Application

There may be times when you want to delete the updates to the application and start over.

  • From the build screen, click Restore Application to display the list of the updates that were generated in a separate window.

  • Click Delete All Listed Objects. The wizard begins to delete the updates starting at the top of the list. An animated symbol tracks the deletion process.
  • Click Stop if you want to stop the delete and restore the updates.
  • When all objects have been deleted, click Close.
