Copy, Create, Edit and Delete End Points

This article describes the basic actions available when you are working with end points. For a detailed guide to using the end point editor, see Writing and Deploying End Points.

Copy an End Point

To copy an end point, right-click on it and select "Copy this end point". A copy will open in the end point editor. The name and description of your copy will be exactly the same as the original, but the major version number will have increased by one. The minor version number is reset to zero. Your copy will be created in the same group as the original.

If you rename your copy before saving it, and the new name is unique within the current end point group, the version number will reset to 1.0.

If you change the group your copy is in (using the properties tab) before saving it, and its name is unique within the new group, the version number will reset to 1.0.

If you copy an end point to a new group, and an end point with the same name and version number already exists, you won't be able to save until its fully qualified name (namespace, name and version) is unique.

Creating and Editing End Points

To create a new end point, right-click on an existing group and select "Create an end point". To edit an existing end point, double-click on it.

End Point Properties

These properties are found on the "Property" tab of the end point editor.

Parent groupThe group this end point is in. Use the "Select" button to pick a new group and move the end point. Note this will also change the end point's namespace, so any references to it will also need updating
Created/Created byWho created this end point and when
Last Modified/Modified byWho last edited this end point and when
Last Published/Published byWho last published this end point and when
Unpublished changesEither "Yes" or "No" if there are changes to the end point that have not yet been published

Deleting an End Point

To delete an end point, right-click on it and choose "Delete this end point".

Deleted end points can be restored using End Point Version History.

Note that it is possible for an end point to exist that has no version history. This can happen if it has only ever been published in development mode and has had version history disabled. If this were the case it would not be possible to restore the end point after it had been deleted.
