Editing Runtime configuration files
You can edit Runtime configuration files in the xml-aware editor available in Pega Robot Manager. Pega Robot Manager also provides version control mechanisms and a smart lock feature.
When you start editing a Runtime configuration file, you acquire a lock on the file, which prevents other users from saving changes to the file you are currently editing. Pega Robot Manager has a smart locking feature that prolongs your lock if no other user makes changes to the same file.
If your lock expires and another user saves changes to the same file (while you are still in the editor), a notification appears. To keep your changes, you can then copy and paste the content that you entered in the editor to a file on your local computer.
