Select an EASAP under: EASA > Applications
Click: EASA > Authoring
EASA > Authoring > EASAP Builder has a link to download and install the EASAP development environment.
EASA > Authoring > Files allows upload, open and edit for files used in a selected EASAP.
A few common uses:
It is possible to enter a path and filename here to upload a file to an EASAP folder on the EASA Server.
However we recommend using the EASAP Builder to upload files, see EASAP Builder > Files.
The 'Current Files' section of the 'Files' page contains a table showing the files currently stored on the EASA Server for the selected EASAP. When a new EASAP is created, the following files are already present:
All other files must be uploaded to be shown in the 'Current Files' table.
The Current Files table has the following five columns:
The Template Editor selection under the Authoring menu takes you to a page containing a table of all files that have been designated as possible template files in EASAP Builder. From this table, you can modify individual files using the Template Editor tool.
The Template Editor table (below) has the following three columns:
The Testing selection under the Authoring menu takes you to the page containing every tool associated with testing. The Test EASAP and Analyse EASAP buttons open the EASAP for troubleshooting purposes, while the Application logs under them opens an event log for the particular EASAP. The table of all the test runs submitted for the selected EASAP on the bottom is called: Test Results This table has the following nine columns:
The figure below shows an example of the Testing page. For more details on testing EASAPs and submitting test runs, see Testing EASAPs.
To publish or unpublish an EASAP takes a single button click, see Publish an EASAP
Authoring > Publish History - shows all versions that have been published for the selected EASAP.
An example of this page is shown in Figure 2.13.
The 'Publish History' table has the following six columns:
Authoring > Backup - allows you to:
You should use the Backup capability on a regular basis, especially before embarking on a number of significant changes to the EASAP after having tested it and gotten it functioning properly.
Authoring > Backup History - takes you to the page containing a table showing all versions of the selected EASAP that have been backed up by the author (shown below).
This table is essentially the same as 'Publish History' except that the Version number here represents the backup version and is not the same as the published version number.
