I am attempting to automate a checkout process of a large group of files using Serena PVCS Version Manager version 8.2.10 en_US (build 150). Each of these files' names are unique, and using the Filename pattern option doesnt allow us to selct the exact list of the multiple files we need to check out, there is nothing common about these.
Currently we have a project database with a project that contains over 2000 files each with an average of 5 to 10 revisions per file. In a few months time, my CM team will be getting requests to check out (then check in) of over 200 to 500 of these files (or more) for a major update of code that needs to happen.
Is there ANY way to use a script, for example, to check out all files that match a list of these files that correspond with a version label (or latest revision), then use this script to add a comment to this large list of checked out files as well?
I noticed there is a > Tool Configuration option under the Admin menu option. Can this let us check out and comment locked revisions en-masse, or is there another alternative??
If anyone can reply within the next few days, this will help us heaps of time at work, and save us having to check out hundreds of files, 10 to 20 files at a time and comment them manually. Please help! :(
