Accepting incoming change sets in Advanced mode

Incoming change sets are the changes that your team members deliver to the current flow target of your repository workspace. The incoming change sets are displayed in the Incoming folder of the Pending Changes view.

About this task

When you check in changes, you add them to a change set that is associated with your repository workspace. You can continuously change files and check them in. The changes are in your repository workspace and are not shared with team members until you deliver the change set.

Check in changes to prevent them from being overwritten. If you accept changes that modify the files that you are working in before you check your changes into your repository workspace, your changes are overwritten. If your changes are checked in and they conflict with incoming changes, you can use merge tools to resolve the conflict so that you can keep the incoming changes and your changes. If the accept operation results in file conflicts, the conflict icon is displayed on those files. To resolve conflicts, use the Pending Changes view.

Also check in changes to back them up. Then, if you lose files on your file system, you can reload your sandbox and synchronize with your repository workspace.

Note: Before accepting changes, refresh the item in the Pending Changes view or from a Windows Explorer window (right-click the item; then click Engineering Workflow Management > Refresh.
