Action menu #

By clicking on the Gear there are the available actions you can use on the configuration.

Edit #

If you created the Configuration with the DSC Configuration Wizard you can edit the configuration.

Edit tags #

Add as many tags as you like and change them to have a more precise filter function.

View code #

Edit the code directly in the editor and then copy it for further use.

Download #

The download function downloads the configuration to your local client. With this function, you can download existing configurations, change them locally and upload them again.

Re-compile #

The Re-compile action gives you the opportunity the re-compile the configuration with a different version of a module.

In this case, the version number will be decreased and the version message will automatically be pre-filled.

Delete #

By deleting a configuration via the frontend, it is then deleted from your tenant.

Please ensure that the loaded modules within a DSC Configuration are not deleted automatically. If you want to remove them as well, you need to delete them in the Modules area.

Deleting modules that are used within other configurations can lead to non-functional configurations. Be careful with the types of modules you are deleting.
