Cannot Create New ATG Scenario

Though I have a distaste for scenarios on occasion there will be a time when I want to create a new scenario. On such an occasion I still start up the ACC, go to Scenarios > Scenarios and discover I can’t create a scenario because the New Scenario box is grayed out.

The issue is often because the process editor server is configured incorrectly. ATG documents how to configure the process editor server.

For example today I found I could not create a new scenario. After putting this scenarioManager.xml in localconfig/atg/scenario and then restarting ATG I was able to create new scenarios again.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
  <server-name xml-combine="replace">

Note that the server name must be the same as the one found at /atg/dynamo/service/ServerName.serverName. For more information about the atg.service.ServerName class, see Referring to Dynamo Servers in the Nucleus: Using Nucleus section of the ATG Programming Guide.

  1. Hi,
    I have tried the same thing but the new scenario button is not enabled.
    Is there any other solution?


  2. Sorry Prateek but off the top of my head I can’t think of another reason. Is this running in your local or another server?
