Delivering change sets

To make outgoing change sets available to the rest of your team, deliver them.

About this task

As you check in changes to a component, change sets accumulate in the component's Outgoing folder. This folder is visible in the Pending Changes view. The message area of the Pending Changes view toolbar indicates how many change sets are pending and whether they are outgoing or incoming. There are several ways to deliver change sets:
  • To deliver all outgoing change sets, click the Accept all change sets icon icon in the Pending Changes view toolbar.
  • To create a change set from unresolved changes and then deliver it, right-click the Unresolved folder or a project in it and click Check in and deliver. (If you have enabled automatic check-in, you cannot use Check in and deliver.)

Procedure

  1. In the Pending Changes view, navigate to the Outgoing folder of the component that contains the change set.
  2. To include a comment, right-click the change set and click Edit Comment. Many team processes require a change set to include a comment, an association with a work item, or both before you can deliver it.
  3. To specify a non-default flow target before you deliver changes, open the Pending Changes view, right-click the repository workspace, and click Change Flow Target. Select from the list of targets you added to your repository workspace, or enter a text string to search for another stream or workspace. For more information, see Understanding and modifying change flows.
    1. In the Pending Changes view, right-click the repository workspace, and click Change Flow Target.
    2. Optional: To change the flow target to a different repository, in the Select a Stream or Workspace window, click Repository. In the Select a Repository window, select the target repository from the list and click OK.
      Note: To change the flow target to a different repository, you must have distributed source control enabled.
    3. In the Select a Stream or Workspace window, select from the list of targets you added to your repository workspace, or enter a text string to search for another stream or workspace. For more information, see Understanding and modifying change flows.
  4. Right-click the change set and click Deliver.
  5. In the Delivering change set window, click Yes to confirm the delivery.
    Note: The Delivering change sets window is enabled by default. To enable or disable the window, click Windows > Preferences > Jazz Source Control > Confirm delivery to the outgoing flow target.
