User Interface


Explanation and features

  • You can specify rules that take into account the following parameters: Types of linked artifacts, Link type, Artifact placement. Artifacts in DNG can be in multiple modules at the same time or in folders (basic form).
  • The information about the linking rules is taken from a specifically configured artifact, making them easy to change for a specific project. It allows you to create many rules in a short time.
  • You can select artifacts through the DNG interface or through the widget dialog boxes as you like.
  • The system will prompt you with messages and help you even if you are wrong.
