The Replica Element tab is visible only if the element has been created as a reference to another model (see the Reference Elements section in Copying and Referencing Elements Using the Scorecard Explorer), i.e. only if the element is a replica element. In the Replica Element tab you can view information of the original element and the replication settings. If you have not scheduled the importing of the element, the element behaves as any other element. If you have scheduled the importing of the element, the element gets its settings from the original element. When the importing is scheduled, the data of the element is replaced periodically from the original element.
The Replica Element tab shows you information about the Original element, the Model, the Scorecard and the Element.
The Automatic replication informs you when the replication was last Executed and the Status of the task. Status is "OK" if there were no errors in importing the model. Status shows "Error" if there were errors in importing the model. By checking the Refresh regularly from original element checkbox you can set the element to be updated on a regular basis. The settings for the replication can be defined in the Replica Elements tab of the QPR Metrics Server section in the QPR Configuration Manager, where you can define the interval for refreshing the elements.
You can click the Manual Refresh button to update the information of the Original element manually.
