Open streams and select a work area

After you log in, the web client automatically opens the last stream you used. You can then open a different stream and set the default work area.

Set your current stream

The following user defaults are stored for each stream that you have previously opened:

Work area The location for items that you update from the repository, modify, and deliver back to CM.
Request Related In Response To new item revisions you create in this stream.
Design part The owning design part for any new items that you create in this stream.
Branch The branch where new item revisions are created.
Library cache area Used to improve performance over wide area networks.

To set your current stream:

  1. In the web client, open the Streams tab.

  2. Select the stream you want to set as current.

  3. In the toolbar, click Set as Current.

  4. Click Yes to confirm.

Set a stream's default work area

When you set your current stream, you can define its default work area.

To select a work area:

  1. In the status area at the bottom of the web client's window, click change next to the work area name.

  2. In the Set Stream Work Area dialog box, in the Work Area field, enter a path to the work area folder.

    If the folder is on your local machine, enter a full path, for example, c:\payroll.

    Note: Avoid setting the work area to the top-level of the drive on your machine, for example, C:\.

    If the folder is on a remote node, begin the path with the node name followed by two colons (::). For example, to use the payroll folder on the UNIX node HOST1, enter HOST1::/payroll.

    Alternatively, click the browse button and navigate to the folder.

  3. Click OK.

For details on how to set other defaults, see Define project/stream default settings.
