Export items

Export an item revision from your current project when you want to use a copy of that item in another project. You can export multiple item revisions.

Note: This functionality is not available for streams.

PRIVILEGES: Add Item Revisions to Project, Remove Item Revisions from Project.

The project file name of an exported item is taken from the project file name in your current project.

Before exporting, ensure that your current project is set correctly. If you need to change the project assignment, first close all content windows.

To export an item from a project:

  1. Select one or more items.

  2. Select Item > Export to Project.

  3. In the Item Specification field, verify that you have selected the correct items to export.

  4. Select the product and project where to export the items to.

    To export to your default project, select Use Default Project.

  5. In the New Folder field, enter the name of the folder where to place the items if you want the items to be located in a different folder from their location in the existing project.

    To use the same location as in the existing project, leave this field empty. If the folder does not exist in the new project, Dimensions CM creates it.

  6. In the Track changes with request(s) field, enter or select any requests you want to use to track the refactoring operation. To use your project default request, leave this field empty.

  7. Click OK.
