The Commit to Server operation is executed to update a Knowledge Base hosted in a GeneXus Server instance.

Once a set of changes is completed, the Developer must publish them. Publishing changes is called Commit and requires the GeneXus Server to be active and accessible to the Developer.

Step by step

To perform a Commit operation the Developer must follow the steps below:

1) Select the Knowledge Manager >Team Development menu option to open the Knowledge Manager Team Development dialog and choose the Commit tab.


2) Press the Refresh button Commit2 to load the set of objects that have been changed locally since the last Commit operation.

3) The Developer can select/deselect the objects to Commit.

4) The developer must type a Comment detailing what these changes mean (explaining the changes to another Developer). As a rule of thumb write a simple, one-line sentence that briefly explains the Commit and then write a few more sentences providing greater detail. 


5) Click the Commit button to finish. All the changes will be packaged and sent to the GeneXus Server and the Knowledge Base will be updated. Use the Team Development output section (Output window) to verify that the Commit operation was successful.


  • Knowledge Base Environment and Version properties can also be included in the Commit operation.
  • Filters can be applied using the Filter option:


Add to ignored objects option

Using the Add to ignored objects option from the contextual menu the Developer will be able to ignore objects so that they are not sent. These will be included in the list in the Ignored Objects tab and left there until they are (explicitly) recovered in a future Commit operation.



Note: Filters can be applied using the Filter option:
