Enabling distributed source control

You can use the Administration page in the web client to enable distributed source control, so that you can deliver changes between repositories. You must enable distributed source control properties on the server for each repository. You must also enable permissions on each project area that governs components that you want to replicate.

Before you begin

You must be logged in to the Administration page of the Jazz Team Server or the Administration page of an application that is registered with the Jazz® Team Server. In either case, you must be a member of the JazzAdmins repository group to have administrative access to enable distributed source control.


  1. To enable distributed source control:
    1. On the Administration page for the server, click the Application tab.
    2. In the left pane, under Configuration, click Advanced Properties.
    3. On the Advanced Properties page, in the SCM area, set the Enable Distributed SCM property to true.
    4. Click Save.
    5. Repeat step 1 for each server.
  2. To enable replication permissions for the set of roles that are applicable:
    1. On the Administration page, click the Project Areas tab.
    2. On the Active Project Areas page, click the project.
    3. On the Project page, click the Permissions tab.
    4. In the Configuration pane, click Team Configuration.
    5. In the Permitted Actions pane, expand Source Control and select Replicate change sets.
    6. Click Save.
    7. Repeat step 2 for each project area that governs components that you want to replicate.
