After you finish editing the model, you must commit the changes to the server so that other team members could see and encounter these changes when editing other parts of the model. When you commit the changes, a new data from your client application (for example, MagicDraw or a Cameo Suite product, such as Cameo Systems Modeler) is merged with the project on the server repository. As a result, a new version of that project is created. Other team members must update their projects from the server to see the committed changes.

Committing is necessary for other team members to see the changes you've made

When committing changes you can choose to release or keep the locks on the model. If you are going to proceed the editing after the commit is over, keep the locks.


To commit changes to Teamwork Cloud

  1. From the Collaborate menu, select Commit Changes To Server, or press Ctrl+K. The Commit Project to the Server dialog opens.
  2. If you need to describe the changes you are going to commit, type a comment in the open dialog.

    You can select a comment from the recently used comments list. Just click the Choose Comment button above the Comment box, and select any comment from the list in the Choose Comment dialog.

  3. If you want to keep locks on the model and continue editing after the commit is over, select the Keep locks check box.

    The Keep locks check box remembers the last choice of the user. Thus, if you want to release the locks every time when committing changes, you don't need to unselect this check box each time you do this, once you make your choice during the first commit.

  4. If you want to tag the new project version, for example add a tag approved, do the following:

    1. Click More. The Version Tags tab appears on the Commit Project to the Server dialog.

    2. Click the Add button.

    3. In the open dialog, type a text and click OK.

  5. You can see local changes of the new project version. Click More and the Local Changes tab appears on the Commit Project to the Server dialog. All project elements having changes are listed in this tab. You may do one of the following:

    • Click the legend to see what changes to elements are done.
    • Click Quick Diff to explore changes of the selected element deeply.
