Web Configuration Console – Tags & Bundles

By Delmar Dehn, Senior Product Manager

Infor Configuration Console for the web (aka Web Configuration Console) is now available! Web Configuration Console is a powerful tool to configure and extend any Infor Landmark technology platform-based application. For example, Web Configuration Console can be used to add user defined fields to any Infor Financials & Supply Management application screen, any Infor HR Talent application screen, and any Infor Payroll application screen. Web Configuration Console can also be used to build user defined business classes, which extend the capabilities of any Infor Landmark technology platform-based application. Web Configuration Console changes take effect in near real-time in the production environment without taking the system down. Web Configuration Console operates from within a web browser and introduces many new features and capabilities.

Since Web Configuration Console can be used to configure and extend Infor Landmark technology platform-based applications in so many ways, Infor will be posting here on the Infor Technology Blog a series of Web Configuration Console videos describing and demonstrating the tool’s noteworthy features. The video demonstrations are hosted and narrated by some of Infor’s foremost Web Configuration Console subject matter experts.

In this post’s part 8 video, Tonia Williamson, Senior Principal Learning Consultant, Infor, explores using Web Configuration Console’s change management functionality known as tags and bundles. She explains that Web Configuration Console’s change management functionality helps you to define, track, and migrate sets of configurations and security classes. Tags provide a means to organize and group your configurations and security classes together. Bundles provide you the ability to identify a specific tag or a group of tags in a group or bundle. Tags and bundles together can be used to manage your configurations and security classes. Tonia demonstrates how to create tags, add a tag to an item, access configurations with tags, access all items with tags, how to remove a tag, how to change the owner of a tag, and explains how to create bundles. Tonia concludes by recommending pertinent Infor Education training courses. Be sure to watch for future Web Configuration Console videos.
