I am trying to understand the StarTeam checkin model.
A colleague told me that you can check a file into StarTeam even though it has not been first checked out. Is this true and, if so, how is this different than adding a new file to StarTeam? Is StarTeam using an unreserved checkout model?
First off, I am new here, and I'm not positive that I'm posting in the right section, so please bare with me. I'm sure there are many questions to come.
I am a new software CM. I just got tossed into the job. I was pretty much told that I would learn as I went. I am a civilian, but working with the Air Force. I am assigned to a new platform that doesn't have anything set up already, except for we know which CM tool we are using, which is Microsoft Visual Studio.
I was told this morning that I need to set up a numbering scheme for all software. I don't even know what that means, and no one seems to be able to give me any good direction.
Can anyone help me out and elaborate what this means? I would appreciate it SO much!
With the Harvest r12.1 you have to specify a port number when using/installing an agent.
So the question is what port should we be using? I started using 5101.
Only down side I can think of is that my broker couldn’t have an agent on that same port. Currently, the broker’s agent is only used for testing. That’s no loss; I could live without an agent on the broker. I’ve also already opened 5101 on the boxes behind the firewall so by reusing that number I could avoid the inconvenience of opening up another port.
I’m I missing something? What else should I be considering?
I've done a search for this particular case and have found no resolutions. I have a developer who has a file checked out (reserved) in a snapshot view on his PC. He is currently out of town and someone else needs to check out that file. How can I as the vobadmin change that reserved checkout to an unreserved checkout?
If that cannot be done, how can that file be "unco"?
If I need to remove that checkout, will the following command remove all checkouts in that particular view?
[center]"cleartool rmview -tag -uuid <UUID> -avobs"[/center]
What command syntax would be used to just remove that checkout only?
A submitter opens an new item. Among all the fields on the form, Field A (unpopulated) is supposed to be visible but Read Only. The user selects the Submit transition and sends the form to the REVIEW state.
In the REVIEW state, Field A must appear as a Required field (that is, it must be populated by the Reviewer).
How do I make that happen?
I'm not the Mashups Admin, but here's the way he has it set up. Field A appears in the REVIEW state as Read Only.
Reviewer selects a transition. The form cycles. An error message appears that "Field A is required" and Field A appears as editable and required. NOW, the Reviewer can populate Field A. Reviewer then selects the OK button. Apparently this occurs because the attribute is set as "Required on Transition." How do we make it "Required BEFORE Transition."
