Automatically update dependent applications to be built on the latest application versions in an archive (8.5)
When you import a product archive, you can now automatically update dependent applications to be built on the latest versions of the dependent applications that you select. By automatically updating dependent applications, you save time and reduce the errors that can occur when you manually update applications to use new built-on application versions.
For example, if you are creating a product archive from the HR Services app, which contains MyDemoApp and Applicat, you can specify that you want to update dependent applications for MyDemoApp and Applicat on the HR Services Product rule form, as shown in the following figure:
If there are newer versions of the Applicat and MyDemoApp applications than those that are on the server, when you import the archive, you can use advanced mode to view the latest versions of those applications. You can then select the applications for which you want to update dependent applications, as shown in the following figure:
Applications that are built on earlier versions of Applicat and MyDemoApp are automatically updated to be built on the latest versions after you import the archive, as shown in the following figure for the My new app application:
