Release : 18.0  18.1

Component :  Endevor SCM


The new CO6MC Type was defined in stage 2 of PROD but not stage 1. 

Need to create the CO6MC Type in stage 1.

1)  Go to the classic ISPF Endevor interface and go to an Environment where the Type is found
2)  Go to 4  ENVIRONMENT   >>  5  TYPE  
3)  Enter the System and  Type and Stage where  the Type is found
4)  Display the Type definition to "pre-populate" the Type definition fields; PF3 back
5)  Enter C on the Options line and specify the Environment and stage where the Type is not found in
6)  Hit enter to create the Type in that Environment and stage
After creating the missing Type definition, check all Environment and stages to verify that the Type definition is not missing in any other stages.
