Viewing files in repositories

You can use the Repository Files Browser tool window to view checked in files and files that are delivered to the Jazz® repository. You cannot modify any file in the Repository Files Browser tool window; it only displays the files.

Before you begin

Before viewing files in the repository, you must be connected to a repository and you must have delivered the files to the repository.

About this task

You can view the repository files either from the Team Artifacts tool window or from the Pending Changes tool window.


  1. In the Team Artifacts tool window, navigate to the workspace, stream, or component.
    Alternatively, in the Pending Changes tool window, navigate to a workspace or a component.
  2. Right-click the workspace, stream, or component and click Show Repository Files.

What to do next

Now, you can right-click a file and choose any of the following operations:
  • Open File: Opens the file that is in the Jazz repository.
  • Open Local File: Opens the file that is in your repository workspace. The repository workspace must be loaded before performing this operation.
