Connected to U2 Server
When connected to a MultiValue server,
Goto Definition can fetch catalog programs from the server to the local machine. Please refer to Connection settings for instructions on how to connect to a U2 server.
For local cataloged programs, if the cataloged program name is the same as its source code file name, use Goto Definition directly. If the cataloged program name is different from its source code file name, you will need set the mapping relationship between cataloged program name and its source code name. Please refer to Catalog settings to configure the mapping relationship.
For global cataloged programs, you need configure the global catalog program information which includes the account name and names mapping. Please refer to Catalog settings and Account settings for more details.
