Loading a component root folder into a sandbox

You can load into a sandbox the structure in ClearCase® by loading the component root.

About this task

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.

Procedure

Before you begin, import file and folders from ClearCase

Load a shared EWM root folder by completing the following steps.

  1. In the Team Artifacts view, expand the workspace that contains the component, right-click the component entry and select Load.
  2. Select Browse the components to select the folders to be loaded and click Next.
  3. 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.
  4. In the Advanced Options area, specify a sandbox path and choose a load option as appropriate.
  5. Click Finish.

Results

The component is loaded as a root folder with the same name as the component.
