Pinned topic How can I see a complete picture of branching graph in Base CC?

‏2013-11-01T19:53:24Z |

Hi All

In UCM, if I browse the baseline on a modifable component, I can almost see a complete picture of the stream structure as well as deliver/rebase merges.

How can I see that in Base CC? There are many branches in a project, nobody can tell me their branching strategy, and I would like to figure out the current status.

Thanks

Jirong

    This is one of the reasons people use UCM.

       There is no simple reliable way to do this in base ClearCase.

    1. You can look at Version Tree Browser for a selection of "high turnover" elements and hope that a pattern is obvious.

    2. You can examine the users view config specs and try to determine it from that.

    3. You can keep asking around until someone admits to being the strategist

    Well, it might be documented in the CM plan, if it was written.

    Otherwise, haven fun. :-)

    1. This is what did.

    2. This is one of the problem. Developers using different config spec to work on the same project, result in checking code into the wrong branch. This won't happen in UCM.

    3. Did that, so far, no result.

    Thanks for your inputs, guys.
