revision Attribute

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The revision attribute provides a method of tracking changes made to the .admx or .adml file.

revision="<MajorVersion.MinorVersion>"

where

<MajorVersion.MinorVersion> is a placeholder for the revision number.

MajorVersion has the format XXXX where X designates a single decimal digit.

MinorVersion has the format XXXXX where X designates a single decimal digit.

The revision attribute exists for both the .admx and .adml files. The revision attributes' values can be incremented independently of each other

The policyDefinitionResources revision attribute works in conjunction with the minRequiredRevision attribute. The MajorVersion value of the revision attribute in the .adml file must be equal to the MajorVersion value of the minRequiredRevision attribute in the .admx file.

The MinorVersion value of the revision attribute in the .adml file must be greater than or equal to the MinorVersion value of the minRequiredRevision attribute in the .admx file.

This XML fragment displays the revision attribute in the .admx file filled out to the full number of allowed digits.

revision="1000.12345"

The following examples demonstrate the relationship between the revision attribute in the .adml file and the minRequiredRevision attribute in the .admx file. If the minRequiredRevision attribute in the .admx file equals 1.1, then the revision attribute could have any value from 1.1 up to but not including 2.0.

revision="1.1"

or

revision="1.1001"

to a maximum value of

revision="1.99999"
