Untracking or tracking repository workspaces

Untrack one or more inactive repository workspaces to improve performance when logging in to a repository connection or refreshing the changes in Pending Changes view. You can also track the workspaces when you need them later.

About this task

When you have multiple large repository workspaces loaded, and you are not actively working in all of them, you can untrack one or more of these repository workspaces that are not active. Untracking improves the performance of the Eclipse client since minimum information is retrieved for untracked workspaces.

To untrack or track a repository workspace, right-click the repository workspace in the Pending Changes view and then select Untrack, or Track. An untracked repository workspace does not show components, change sets, baselines, or flow targets.

Note: The command line interface is affected only when the lscm command is used in an Eclipse sandbox and is communicating with the Eclipse daemon:
  • The lscm show status command shows only the name for an untracked repository workspace, with an indication that it is not tracked.
  • Various commands that involve the repository workspaces in the sandbox (for example, lscm checkin, lscm deliver) are disabled for untracked workspaces. You can see a message that these commands are not available for an untracked workspace.


  1. In the Pending Changes view, right-click the repository workspace, and click Untrack.
    When marked as untracked, various actions (for example, accept, deliver) that can be performed on a repository workspace are disabled.
  2. To track the workspace marked as Untracked, right-click the repository workspace and click Track.
  3. Optional: To view only the untracked workspaces, click the View menu icon icon in the upper right of the Pending Changes view toolbar and then click Show untracked workspaces.


The selected workspaces are untracked to improve performance of the Eclipse client when logging in to repository connections.
