Using change labels

In order to also be able to assign a change label to changes, you need to select a change label for further use.

To use a change label

  • On the toolbar, select the required change label in the Change label list.

    Any changes stored in the project during this session will be assigned to the selected change label.

    TIP: If you always use the same change label and do not want to select it every time you start the API Designer, click Use the current change label as default in the toolbar.
