The configuration object editor window is intended for editing properties of core configuration objects, managing the structure of their subordinate objects, and setting up object interaction rules.
The properties that can be edited are located on several tabs. Each tab contains a set of attributes used for setting specific object properties. You can switch between the tabs by clicking Next and Back.
The set of tabs may vary depending on configuration object type, as well as the set of fields on tabs of the same type. Some objects can have unique tabs that are only applicable to a single object type. For example, the Posting, Journals, and Sequences tabs are unique to document objects.
