When you press Save, the following events occur:
1. The system generates one column for each Portfolio level that you created on the Levels Tab.
2. The system generates a path_portfolio_name column where you will be able to trace the exact location of every record in the Portfolio hierarchy.
3. The system generates the resulting Data Source Portfolio-result[portfolio_name].data_model_name with the layout containing:
a. The Index column – the column you selected as an index when setting up the main data source (Axiom Index in our case).
b. The system-generated column called “path_portfolio_name” where, when viewing data, the location of every record in the Portfolio hierarchy could be traced.
c. The system-generated column for each portfolio level
4. The system generates Portfolio Control (lookup) sources – one for each system-generated column (level columns and path_portfolio_name column) and inserts them in the resulting source layout.
5. The system inserts any Additional columns you have set up Portfolio Definition into the resulting source layout.
6. The system generates a resulting Data Model with the root node named Portfolio[portfolio_name].
The original Data Model used in the saved Portfolio will form a subordinate node together with the Control sources either system-generated columns.
7. If you assigned a Control (lookup) Source for your Additional Column, it will also be included in the Resulting Data Model structure.
The Object Pane of the Project Management screen displays objects generated as a result of saving the new Sample Portfolio (Fig.).
Archiving Schedule Setup
Assuming our Sample portfolio will be executed on a daily basis, place the checkmark against the Daily basis option.
Note: You can place a checkmark against as many execution frequencies as you want (including User-defined archiving) and make your final selection later when setting up the Portfolio execution.
Building the Sample Portfolio Structure
After you have completed setting up the Root (Portfolio) node’s properties you are ready to begin building the Portfolio structure.
To create the first level (we named this level Schedule when setting up Sample Portfolio root node properties):
1. Click on the Portfolio node to select it.
2. Press (Insert Node) button. Alternatively, you can right-click on the root node and choose the Insert Node option from the menu. The system inserts add a node and names it NewNode_001.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to insert as many nodes as you need on the First (Schedule) Level (three nodes in our example) following the outline of the sample Portfolio structure. The system will assign all the nodes the same default name – NewNode – followed by consecutive numbers (Fig. ).
At this point, you can continue building the Portfolio structure or you can give proper names to the nodes you just inserted into the first level. This is up to the user whether to build the Portfolio structure first and then rename nodes or name newly created nodes as one proceeds.
In our case, since all subsegments and entries are identical in all Level 1 nodes of the Sample Portfolio, it would make sense to complete one level one node’s thread and then copy this structure in its entirety into the rest of the Level 1 nodes.
To rename nodes:
1. Select the NewNode_001 node by clicking on it.
2. Use the Rename Node option from the Edit Menu to switch the selected node’s nametag into editing mode. Alternatively, you can use the Rename Node option from the right-click menu.
Note: To switch the node’s name tag into the editable mode you can simply double click on it.
3. Type in a new name for the selected node.
4. Repeat the above steps for the rest of the nodes of the level one.
The Portfolio Structure Panel displays the first level nodes under the assigned names (Fig.).
To create the Second Level structure of the Sample Portfolio:
1. Highlight a Level 1 (Income_ops) node.
2. Press the Add Node button to insert a node of the Subsegments level.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to insert as many nodes as required by the Sample Portfolio guidelines.
4. Rename Level 2 nodes using the already described node naming procedure (Fig.).
5. Use the above-described steps to insert and name the third level nodes into Cash_deals node of the Income_ops node following guidelines of the Tutorial Portfolio setup (Fig.).
Note: When naming the third level nodes we used consecutive numbering to preserve the logical sequence.
This completes the setup of the cash_deals subsegment of the Income_ops segment thread following our Sample Portfolio structure.
Remember that in our Sample Portfolio the entries will be identical in all subsegments and, upon the completion of the conditions set up, can be copied to the rest of the subsegments of the Segment 1 by drag-and-drop method.
Also, the subsegments level nodes will be identical in all segments and, upon completion of the logical conditions setup, can be copied to the rest of the segments by drag-and-drop method.
