Dimensions CM is a process management and change control system that helps you organize, manage, and protect your software development projects.

To use Dimensions CM as an artifact source, select Dimensions from the Source Config Type drop-down list box and then configure the type-specific fields described here. For information about creating components, see Creating Components.

Tip: Deployment Automation always takes the latest baseline during automatic import. Therefore, if there are three baselines A, B, and C, with C being the latest, only C would be imported. If you add baseline D, we will import D, but A and B will not be imported unless you manually import them.
Note: The Dimensions CM Source Config Type integration is not the same as the Dimensions CM plugin. Plugins are special integrations used in processes. For details on using the Dimensions CM plugin, see the Deployment Automation Integration Guide.
