To move past the basics of Vault software into the area of drawing revisions, approvals, security, and advanced property management, you need to deal with lifecycles. In this class, we look at Vault lifecycles from both a file side and an item side and help you decide which is the best course of action. We configure Vault lifecycles and discuss how they are used in the revision process and how they set the rules for state changes.
- Configure lifecycle definitions
- Apply state changes
- Manage revisions
- Apply security settings and downstream usage
