Creation of Data Content Records (DCRs)

May 26, 2010 Comments off

We will be using the Interwoven Teamsite WebDesk Pro Templating features for creation of DCRs and generation of output pages.

A DCR is created when a user inputs data into a DCT. A DCR is essentially an XML document containing data entered by the user. The DCR have tag <record> as the root tag containing a number of <item> tags.

The data is present inside tag <value> which is nested inside tag <item>.

Let us look at how to create a DCR using a Interwoven TeamSite Templating interface

Step 1: Launch Interwoven TeamSite templating and browse to your workarea.

In the snapshot above, the workarea is Development_wa inside Developmet_branch. So as a first step we just browse to our Workarea ‘Development_wa’. This will list all the directories/files present inside Development_wa on the right side(as can be seen  in the snapshot).

Step 2: Select ‘New Data Record’ from the first menu bar from left.

Step 3 : Select the category and data type for which you need to capture data. The following screen comes up which asks you to select a category and data type. One needs to just browse to the category directory and one will find all the data types listed for that directory. On selection of a data type the data capture form gets displayed to the user.

Step 4 : Input some data into the data capture form.

Step 5: Save the DCR by clicking the Save option. By default the DCR will get saved in data directory of the selected data type.
