    • Timestamp: Indicates the day and the time the change was made.

    • Id: This is the indentifier of the block.

    • Block: The type of the PDI block, it can be PID Static or Tsched PID.

It is advisable to attach this folder when creating the issue.


    The user’s ‘Joint Collaboration Framework’ is simply a own Github repository for each customer.
