Getting started

After you launch the Authoring tool, the Welcome to the Metadata Authoring Wizard screen appears. Select one of the following options:

  • To create a new device metadata package, select Create new device metadata package, and then click Next.
  • To update an existing device metadata package, select Update existing device metadata package, click Browse to select the package, and then click Next. Note You can't edit Device Stage experiences with the tool. However, the Device Stage folder isn't changed if you update the package by using this tool.
