Stores

Prism uses a Subsidiary/Store/Workstation hierarchy. This topic has information about working with store records.
When you initialize Prism, the store records for the subsidiaries included in the initialization are copied to the Prism server. You can add/edit store records in RIL Prism Management or Prism.

Add/Edit Stores
To add/edit a store record, in Preferences & Settings > Node Selection, drill down to the desired subsidiary. Keep in mind that RIL's license manager checks the number of active stores. When adding/editing a store, enter details for the store in the Store Information dialog. Save the changes.
