Error description

  • When creating a new view in IBM Rational ClearCase
    ClearTeamExplorer the dialogue may indicate incorrect view types
    as being available. That is, automatic and web views are
    available for views being created under "ClearCase Local" or
    dynamic and snapshot if the view creation is started from a
    stream under the WAN connection. This is ONLY seen if the same
    stream is chosen under "ClearCase Local" then under the WAN
    connection or vice-versa.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. select a stream under ⠜ClearCase Local⠝
    2. right-click and select ⠜Create View⠦⠝, the dialogue box
    to select Dynamic or Snapshot views.
    3. select the same stream (Eg: ⠜Projct1_Int⠝) under
    ⠜ClearCase [http://CCRCWANSERVER/ccrc]⠝ and right-click and
    select ⠜Create View⠦⠝, the dialogue box to select Dynamic
    or Snapshot views. However,the view creation dialogue box should
    have web and automatic view options.
    
    The same is seen in reverse if initially selecting the stream
    under [http://CCRCWANSERVER/ccrc], it shows options for web and
    automatic views.
    Selecting the same stream under ⠜ClearCase Local⠝, the view
    options are web and automatic views.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    First, select a different stream under "ClearCase Local" or
    under the WAN connection, then choose the original stream again,
    creating the view will now show the correct available types.
