Modifying workspace flow targets in Advanced mode

A flow target is the target area into which delivered changes flow. The flow target for a stream or repository workspace can be another stream or workspace. When you create a repository workspace from a stream, that stream becomes the default flow target. When you create a repository workspace from the My Source Control > All Repository Workspaces area, you can select a stream as the flow target by clicking Flow with a stream.

Before you begin

Before changing the flow target, you must create a repository workspace.
