Edit the External Editor Preferences. Click to edit the external editor preferences. You can run the editor by adding flags to the path.

Note You cannot specify the file name. Instead, you can use flags relevant to your external editor to retrieve the file name, such as :file.

Validation Information

Displays if the definition is valid or not:

  • . Indicates that the definition is valid.
  • . Indicates that there is an error in the definition.

  • . Indicates that the definition could not be validated.

    Note This may occur due to an internal error while performing the validation. This does not, under any circumstances, harm the process of saving your definition to the server. See %temp%\UcmdbLog\error.log for details. For further assistance, contact Support.
