What are artifact duplicates?

If you have duplication checking active, Project Tracker will use a subset of attributes to check for possible duplicates in the database.

If duplicates are found, a report of similar artifacts will be presented with your artifact listed at the top. Review the artifacts listed to determine if an existing artifact covers the artifact you are entering. You can do a number of things at this point:

Reviewing duplicates

For each item in the database that has been identified as a possible duplicate for the criteria you entered, an entry appears in the Identified as duplicate screen. Each column represents an attribute used in the search for duplicates.

Use this page to compare your potential new artifact with those in the database.
