Hi AJ,

Add 1: You can include the specific repository to a specific recording file which uses it. When you copy it, or use it in another project, you don't need to think about copying the repository items too.
Add 2: When you select it the repository will be included in the Recording.
Add3: They depend on what you are trying to do. In general it is common to not embed the repository to your recordings.

Regards,
Markus

Hi Markus,

Thanks for the reply.
Add1: let me clarify this again with an example just to make sure we are in same page.
For e.g: If I have recordings, recording 1 and recording 2 in one repository file (e.g.repository1)
and another two recording, recordings 3 and 4 in another repository file (e.g. repository2),
then if I choose embedded repository option from Repository Module. It will combined repository 1 and repository 1 to one file embedded repository file.

Please let me know my understanding is correct regarding this.
If so, I would like to know the answers for the following questions.

1. Can we rename the embedded repository file to a user-defined name?
2. Once we select embedded repository option, could de-couple the bindings again (i.e; whether we could separate repositories again as repository 1 (for recording 1 and 2) and repository 2(for recordings 3 and 4)

Regards,
Anish

Hi Anish,

I am afraid I don't understand what you mean with: "It will combined repository 1 and repository 1 to one file embedded repository file.".
It just mean that the recording files will also contain the specific repository.

Markus
