Issue:
I want to add an element to stage 1 but it fails with Error
"THIS TYPE HAS NOT BEEN DEFINED AT STAGE stage-id WITHIN SYSTEM system-id        
My stage stage-id is for stage 2 not for stage 1
I Only need the type to be defined is stage 1 not stage 2 which is not in use and will remain empty
Environment:
All Endevor version
Cause:
Any type must be defined in both stages, i.e. 1 and 2.
Resolution:
If you want the stage 2 to not be updated by any action from stage 1(Move or Transfer from stage 1), you should use ESI to protect stage 2.
As a bypass, for the time required to implement ESI, you can define the type in stage 2 and define Base and Delta with a non allocated dataset.
This way, if a user tries to move or transfer an element from stage 1 to stage 2, Endevor will issue an error message C1E0116E and the move won't be performed. This can be a temporary solution, ESI being the best and proper solution.
