Checking in a changed file

After you change a file in your workspace, check in the file to the loaded repository workspace.

About this task

In either the Source Control panel or the z/OS UNIX Directory List panel, a changed file is displayed in the list of files with an asterisk (*) in the SCM column. The asterisk (*) means that the local file has changes that are not checked in to the repository workspace. To check the changed file into the workspace, follow these steps.

Procedure

  1. In the Source Control or z/OS UNIX Directory List, enter a C next to the file with the asterisk (*). To check in multiple changed files with the same change set, enter a C next to each file with an asterisk (*).
  2. In the Select a Change Set panel, enter one of the following choices:
    1. To use the default change set, enter a 1 in the action field and press the Enter key to check in the file to the workspace.
    2. To create a new change set, enter a 2 in the action field and press the Enter key. In the New Change Set panel, you can enter a work item number and a comment. Enter an asterisk (*) in the work item field to display unresolved work items that are currently assigned to you, from which you can select a work item to associate. To create a new work item for the change set, enter a forward slash (/) next to the Create new work item field in the New Change Set panel. The Create Work Item panel opens. Refer to Create a work item for a change set for information about the fields of the Create Work Item panel.
    3. To use an existing change set, enter a forward slash (/) next to one of the comments listed. The list includes all change sets that are not complete in the component.
    4. When you select or create the work item for the change set, press the Enter key to check the file in to the workspace.
    When the screen reverts to the Source Control panel or the z/OS UNIX Directory List panel, the SCM column is blank. When the SCM column is blank, the file is under source control with no local changes.
