Replacing the contents of components or workspaces

You can replace the contents of a component or an entire workspace with the current contents of another workspace, baseline, or stream.

About this task

The replace operation provides a convenient way to update a component in your workspace with the latest version from any workspace flow target. It is especially useful for quickly updating components that you depend on but do not modify. Workspace contents can be replaced with the current contents of any workspace flow target, or with the contents of a workspace snapshot. Component contents can be replaced with the current contents of the component in any workspace flow target, the contents of the component in another workspace or stream, or with a component baseline.


  1. In the Pending Changes view, navigate to the workspace or component that you want to replace.
  2. Right-click the workspace or component and click Replace with.
  3. Choose a source for the replacement.


Depending on the choice you made in Step 3, you might be prompted for additional information. When you have supplied all the information that is needed to specify the source of the replacement, the contents of the selected component or workspace are replaced with the contents from the specified source.
