Loading a component root folder into a sandbox
You can load into a sandbox the structure in ClearCase® by loading the component root.
A IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) component has a root folder that can contain files and folders. Typically, the component contains a set of folders and it is these folders that are loaded into a sandbox in the client file system. However, to accurately reflect ClearCase VOB structure in a sandbox, the EWM component root folder must itself be loaded.
About this task
Before you begin, import file and folders from ClearCase
Load a shared EWM root folder by completing the following steps.
- In the Team Artifacts view, expand the workspace that contains the component, right-click the component entry and select Load.
- Select Browse the components to select the folders to be loaded and click Next.
- In the Repository Folders to load window, click the check box next to the component root until a mark is displayed only in that check box and all child check box are empty.
- In the Advanced Options area, specify a sandbox path and choose a load option as appropriate.
- Click Finish.
The component is loaded as a root folder with the same name as the component.
