The Create Item wizard for creating objects provides similar functionality on an MVE site as for a non-MVE site, with differences noted in the sections below.

Create Item Wizard: When you use the Create Item wizard to create any objects in the Network tree or in a user navigation tree in Views, you are prompted for MVE validation if the parent of the new item requires an MVE annotation or MVE electronic signature.

Creating Field Points using Discovery: When you use the Create Item wizard with Discovery to create field points under a field device, or within a folder under a field device, the creation process has two stages with separate MVE validation prompts for any required MVE annotations or MVE electronic signatures.

In its first stage, the process creates any non-extension type field points you have selected from the Discovery results. In this stage, the Metasys UI prompts you for MVE validation if the field device, or folder, requires an MVE annotation or MVE electronic signature. The MVE annotation or MVE electronic signature from that MVE validation prompt are then associated with all of the audits for creating those field points.

The second stage begins after the creation of all non-extension type field points is complete. In this stage, the process creates any extensions you have selected from the Discovery results, as well as any additional Alarm and Trend extensions specified by the checkboxes in the wizard. This prompts you for MVE validation if you add the extensions to one or more validated field points. The MVE annotation or MVE electronic signature from the second stage MVE validation prompt is associated with any audits generated for creating extensions on validated field points. The MVE annotation or MVE electronic signature is not associated with any audits for creating extensions on non-validated field points, for example, field points that require neither an MVE annotation nor an MVE electronic signature.
Note: In the second stage, the Create Item wizard provides a retry link if the creation of one or more extensions fails or if you cancel the MVE Validation window for the second stage. When you click the Retry link, the Metasys UI will try again to create any extensions that failed or were canceled. In this case the Metasys UI provides the same MVE validation functionality as described above for the second stage.
