Procedure

  1. Select the item to create. The corresponding wizard appears. If more than one type of item is available, select the desired type. Click Next.
    1. Menu Selection: Action > Show Extensions
      Launches the Extension Wizard to create extensions to objects that support them.
    2. Menu Selection: Tools > Manage Archive
      Launches the Manage Archive Wizard within BCT. The following options are available within the archive databases: Upload from Device, Download to Device, Synchronize and Upgrade Device. An option to upload the CAF files of connected field controllers into the archive database is also available.
    3. Menu Selection: Tools > Security Copy
      Launches the Security Copy Wizard Wizard within BCT.
    4. Menu Selection: Tools > Database
      Launches the Restore Archive Wizard, in the BCT.
    5. Menu Selection: Insert > Site, Device, BCPro Server, Integration, Field Device, Field Point, Folder, and Object
      Launches the Site, Device, BCPro Server, Integration, Field Device, Field Point, Folder, and Object Wizards individually, in the BCT to add new objects.
    6. Menu Selection: Insert > Integration, Field Device, Field Point, Folder, and Object
      Launches the Integration, Field Device, Field Point, Folder, Control System, and Object Wizards individually, to add new objects.
  2. Select the destination for the new item and click Next.
    Note: All items appear in the wizard, not just valid destinations. When you click an item that is not a valid destination for the item being added, an error message appears on the right side of the wizard and the Next button is disabled.
    Note: Items in the navigation tree load on a per device basis instead of all at once. When you click a device for the first time, an hourglass cursor appears while the device’s child items load in the navigation tree. This functionality saves time on large sites as it allows you to load only the data for the desired devices.
  3. Complete the information on the wizard screens, using the navigation buttons to move through the screens. The screens vary depending on the item you are creating. See the Using Wizards section for information specific to each wizard.
  4. Select Finish on the summary page to create the item. If an error occurs, a message displays and the wizard returns to the summary page. If the item supports extensions, the Extension Wizard displays after the item is successfully created.
