Work with Machine IDs window

This section describes the columns and fields listed in the Work with Machine IDs window.

The upper part of the window contains a list of machine identifiers, which is continuously updated according to the functions performed. Below the list is a group of objects that map to all the data elements of the selected machine identifier. The following list describes the controls listed in the Machine IDs window:

Control Description
Machine ID Identifier of the machine. This field uniquely identifies the element and cannot be changed.
Description Description of the machine identifier.
Model Model of the machine.
Processor Processor in the machine.
Insert Date Date when the new machine ID was created.
Insert Time Time when the new machine ID was created.
Refresh The machine ID information. If another user creates a machine ID from a different executable in the same database, you can see the changes.
Apply Confirms the changes made to the machine ID. Before changes are applied, a series of checks on data elements are performed; if the checks fail, the update is blocked.
New Initializes fields for insertion when creating a new machine ID.
Delete Deletes the selected machine ID. Before a machine ID can be deleted, a series of referential integrity checks are carried out which, if not passed, generate an error message and block the deletion.
Note: Before deleting a machine ID, any company identifiers contained within it must be deleted in the Work with Companies area. For more information, see Work with Companies.
Cancel Cancels any changes applied to the selected machine identifier. Any actions confirmed with Apply cannot be restored with Cancel but must be entered and confirmed again.
OK Saves any changes that have not been applied and closes the window.
