Viewing process history

You can see the history of changes to the process of a project area or a team area.

About this task

When you create a project area or team area, the History page is updated to show the initial process settings for the project area or team area. You can expand the Process Specification entry to see the source XML code for the full process specification. When you make changes to the process, the History page is updated to show those changes. The changes are listed in chronological order with the most recent changes appearing at the top of the page.

Table 1 lists the changes that are shown and those that are not shown for project areas. Some changes are shown only as part of the entries for process specification XML changes.
