How does one create 'child project areas' as mentioned in the screenshot below ?

Child project area

and this is not a child of this PROJECT, but a child of the project TEMPLATE.

On the overview tab of any project, you have a choice of sharing the definition (acting as a parent) or not, or consuming some projects definition. (acting as a child)

I am sorry, I am not clear - are you implying that unconfigured project areas using shared process are 'child' areas ? I am familiar with theĀ  process sharing , my question is about terminology. Thanks

Hi Natalia, I am not too sure but if you are asking about the "Final" checkbox which I just noticed you highlighted in your original post.

Anyway, you will find the Final checkbox in multiple places while process configuration. This restricts any changes/customization on that particular operation to be changed in Child PAs if marked Final on the Parent PA.

Hi, Indradri. My question is - what is 'child' project area vs 'parent' project area.

Sam, I am not sure templates can have children.

I think what the two of you are trying to say - project sharing process definition is considered a master/parent, and projects using that definition are 'children'.

Thank you

correct, projects USING another projects process configuration are called 'children'.. no DATA is shared, just the process configuration (and not all of it, team areas, iterations, categories are not shared)
