A Design Element Profile represents a design element contained in the installation database. There is one Design Element Profile for each design element. The Design Element Profile contains some basic metadata about the corresponding design element - for instance, here’s the Design Element Profile for the profile form itself…
The Design Element Profile contains useful metadata about the corresponding design element, such as:
- Element Name - the name of the design element [Design Element Profile]
- Element Type - the design element type, such as Script Library, Form, etc. [FORM]
- Element Alias(es) - any aliases assigned to the design element [desElement]
- Element Modified Date - the date and time the design element was last modified [03/18/2021 03:20:37 PM]
- Element UNID - the Document UNique ID (UNID) of the design element [3C3DA40D37A4EB6B8525867600470097]
- Featureset? - this flag indicates if the design element is a part of the featureset (Yes) or not (No) [No]
- Comments - any comments the developer or administrator may wish to add about the element
Design Element Profiles are used by the install code to identify and more easily access the elements that are a part of the featureset. You can create individual Design Element Profiles, however it’s much easier to just delete the existing ones and use the 99. Admin/01. Generate Design Element Profiles action found in the DOMI Installation database.
There is an agent available in the DOMI Installation db that will automatically generate a Design Element Profile for each design element found in the database. This agent can be found under Actions/99. Admin/01. Generate Design Element Profiles.
It is recommended that you delete all of the the old Design Element Profile documents before you run this agent.
Once you generate all of your Design Element Profile documents, you need to mark which elements are a part of your featureset. You can do this from within one of the two Design Element Profile views, but it’s recommended that you use the view 02. Design Element Profiles/02. All by Feature Flag
Since the DOMI Installation database is deisgned to open to a landing page, getting to the underlying views may seem difficult for some. You can do this easily by selecting View/Go To… from the Menu bar. Alternatively you can right-click on the database in the Workspace and select Application/Go To…
Once you’re in the view, simply select the design elements that are a part of your featureset, then click the Mark Selected as Feature? view action and click Yes or No.
All elemements that are marked as a part of the featureset will be injected into the target mail database/template by the installation agent.
