Source control: what is a default flow target


William Smith (1121) | asked Nov 27 '08, 11:39 a.m.
What does it mean for a stream or a workspace to have a default flow target? I understand the significance of the current flow target, but what effect does it have to mark a flow target as the default?

When delivering to a non-default flow target, a prompt will warn you that
you are doing so, ie. the default flow target does not prompt you as you
try to run the deliver action.

Its just a simple mechanism to prevent you from accidently delivering code
to the wrong stream since you may change flow targets quite often to see
differences between your repository workspace and other streams, but then
forget to change your flow target back to the stream that you normally
work with.

Thank you very much for the help.

Andrew's explanation is exactly what I was looking for here. I had read the page "About flow targets" in the infocenter, but couldn't work out from that information why a default flow target is needed / useful. Andrew explanation makes that clear.

I completely agree with this statement. Jazz people, maybe you could add Andrew's explanation to your documentation? I also now understand the difference between current and default flow only after Andrew's explanation.
