Creating and pushing lightweight tags

You can use the Git Client to:

  • Create lightweight tags.
  • Push changes to Dimensions CM.
  • Create new changesets.
  • Store lightweight tag information as a property of a changeset.

Example:

  1. Clone a stream:
  2. git clone dimensions://cmserver/cm_typical@dim14/qlarius/java_brancha_str .
  3. Make changes to the code.
  4. Commit the changes and create a lightweight tag called mywork:
  5. git commit –a –m “comment for my changes”
    git tag mywork
  6. Push the lightweight tag to Dimensions CM:
  7. git push origin mywork

The push command:

  • Delivers the code changes.
  • Creates a new Dimensions CM changeset with the tag mywork.
