Modify the XML definition for a profile

Rather than using a Subversion client to check out and edit a profile, you can edit the profile XML definition in a text box in the Lab Management user interface. This allows you the greatest flexibility in changing parts of the profile.

  1. Log into TeamForge Lab Management as a user with TeamForge Lab Management Domain Admin privileges.
  2. Click the Administration tab.
  3. On the Administration menu, click Manage Profiles.
  4. Right-click a profile and select Admin from its context menu.
  5. In the Modify Profile: Profile XML Definition section, click View/Edit XML Definition of Profile. This brings up the content of the profile XML definition in an editable text box.
  6. To edit the content, we recommend that you copy it to a text editor, edit and save it. Then copy it back into the text area.
  7. To double-check your changes your changes before checking in the new version, click Show Diff.
  8. When you're done, click Check In New Version. If, by some chance, you made a mistake and the profile is invalid, don't worry -- since profiles are versioned, you can always mark that version as unbuildable.
