Lifecycle Definitions in v5.1.1.x

Building Lifecycle Applications for v5.0

The Lifecycle Definitions tab stores the capture lifecycles configure to manage the capture, indexing and distribution process. Server-side processes created using the Lifecycle Editor are also stored here and can be distinguished from the desktop capture lifecycles as the Server-Side flag will be set to Yes.

The web can be used to create desktop capture lifecycles only.
