Renaming projects in a repository workspace

To rename a project in the repository, rename it in your repository workspace. The result is a change set that renames the project in flow targets that accept it.

About this task

Engineering Workflow Management source control includes a special operation to rename an Eclipse project in your repository workspace. The rename operation is treated like any other folder name change operation and becomes part of a change set. The project is also renamed in other workspaces or streams where that change set has been applied.


  1. In the Eclipse Navigator view (or any Eclipse view that supports Team operations), navigate to the project that you want to rename.
  2. Right-click the project and click Team > Rename in Repository Workspace.


The project is renamed in the local and repository workspaces. When you deliver the resulting change set, the project is renamed in the workspace flow target.
