Remote Search

  • Only Published items are available for Remote search.
  • Saved Query in Teamcenter can be used for this.
  • Even though item with its Icon is shown as a result, Item can not be expanded
  • This is just an indication that Item exists in ODS.
  • In order to use this item, it needs to be remote imported first.

Remote Import / Remote Export

  • To make these operations, item has to be present on ODS.
  • Tools → Import → Remote OR Tools → Export → To remote Site
  • Successful import creates a copy of the item in Home folder
  • Import or Export can be done in two modes
    • With ownership to the destination site
    • Without ownership (send as a replica) to the destination site
  • Automatic sync option to be set if required at the time of operation.

Object Import / Export

  • When two sites in the federation do not have a direct connection, this method is used.
  • This is a crude form of the Item export/import
  • Item and its components are transferred using object import/export and related files are transferred using offline FTP methods.
    Tools → Export → Objects OR Tools → Import → Objects


  • When an item is shared with a remote site, a replica of it needs to be updated from time to time. This is done by synchronization.
  • This may be completed as a scheduled task.
  • Modes of Synchronization –
    • Automatic Sync – Need to be set at the time of item export/import.
    • Batch Sync – Done by data_sync utility.
    • Tools → Multi-site Collaboration → Synchronize

                                          Multisite Utility

There are many utilities in Teamcenter which can be used for data sharing on multi-site collaboration.
Few of them are listed below –

  • Item_export
  • Item_import
  • data_share

When the master object is modified, replicas may be up to date with the aid of using a gadget administrator via this utility. The procedure of retaining replicated facts up-to-date is known as synchronization.


When item is shared with the remote site, a replica of it needs to be updated from time to time. This is done by synchronization.

  • export_recoveryFor recovering site ownership of object
  • sync_on_demand
  • database_verify.
