Adding a new Category post go live

Aug 15, 2012 at 10:31 AM


If we need to add a new category after the system has gone live, what is the recommended way to do this? I can't see any function that enables this and I imagine that adding a new record in the category table isn't enough due to references in views/functions/sp's.

Is the only way to maintain this through the Desginer? This will involve dropping everything in the target security database and then running the "Apply" process. Correct me if I'm wrong here.

Many Thanks.

After reading the new white paper , it is prohibited by design to add new category .So this case is not exist .

But I have new question here :-

I built new label policy and I applied it on an existing database , which already have data . How I can label the existing records with labels ? is it doable ?

I will be so grateful if anyone answered me .
