Team Library Connections

If you are modeling in a different model from the rest of your team, you can switch to Team Libraries from other Enterprise Architect models, including models located on servers. This connects only to the Team Library for the selected model; it does not change the model open in the Browser window or anywhere else in the system.


Open the Team Documents window using one of the methods outlined here, then either:

  • Right-click on the Team Documents window and select 'Connections', or
  • Click on the 'Connection Options' drop-down field and choose 'Configure Connections'


Start > Collaborate > Team Library
