What is the difference between Built-In and Repository?


Built-in: all information is stored locally in the Job. You can enter and edit all information manually.

Repository: all information is stored in the repository.


You can import read-only information into the Job from the repository. If you want to modify the information, you must take one of the following actions:

  • Convert the information from Repository to Built-in and then edit the built-in information.
  • Modify the information in the Repository. Once you have made the changes, you are prompted to update the changes into the Job.

Which is better?

It depends on the way you use the information.

  • Use Built-In for information that you use only once or very rarely.
  • Use Repository for information that you want to use repeatedly in multiple components or Jobs, such as a database connection.
