To evaluate PureCM you can use the 'Example' repository. When you are ready to start working with PureCM you will want to create a new repository. To create a repository go to the Administration view and connect to the server by expanding it in the tree. Right click the server and select the 'Create Repository' menu option. The Repository Wizard will be launched.
The Details page allows you to choose a title for the repository and the name of the first project.
Press <Next> to Finish. The new repository will be the active repository and will appear under the server in the Administration View.
After creating the repository you may want to modify the changeset reference. By default, each submitted changeset in the repository will be called '[repos name]/[change number]'. You can change this by right-clicking the repository in the Administration View and selecting 'Properties'.
The Change ID Format field allows for the format of changeset IDs to be customised. When a changeset (a group of changes to one or more files) is submitted to the server, the ID specified here will be appended to it.
