DNG - do we need a change set when working in a global configuration context?

 hi all

I note than when I work in DNG outside of a GC, in order to create a requirement, I have to have a change set.
This doesn't appear to be the case when I'm in a GC.
Explanations welcome..

My understanding so far is that change sets in DNG are only valid in a local configuration and have nothing to do with global configurations. 

If you need a change set in DNG is a property that you have to actively enable per stream as far as my (limited) experience goes.  

The best practice is to always use change sets.

Making change sets mandatory to create/update/delete artifacts is a setting at configuration (stream) level.
So you will have the following message in your tree view:

To create, edit, or save artifacts and views, you must work in a new or existing change set.
ID CRRRW7853I  To create or edit artifacts, you must use a change set. However, a change set is not required to edit link validity, reviews, comments, templates, personal tags, and personal views.

If that same DNG stream is part of a global configuration, it still is mandatory to use a change set when working in that global configuration. I just tried that in my DNG RC1 setup. Maybe in earlier 6.0.x version that wasn't the case yet, but haven't tried that.

So probably the DNG configuration in the CG is a different one than your local configuration.
