How to activate collections: target choices

When you have a new database that you want to incorporate into SFX, keep in mind that activation is a three step process:

  1. Activate the appropriate Target
  2. Activate the Target Service (S = Service level) Then click on the edit window to the left and check the proxy box if you need the target to run through your proxy server.
  3. Activate the Object Portfolio (P = Portfolio)

Finally, check your work by clicking on the swirl (test button) on the far right side of the Target line in SFX
