PI97705: RMBRANCH DELETES A BASELINED/LABELED VERSION

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • "cleartool rmver" does not allow removal of a version that is
    part of a labeled baseline
        because it corrupts the baseline
        and any descendant baselines will not label any version of
    that element
    
    However, that restriction can be worked around by a user by
    doing a "cleartool rmbranch".
    

Local fix

  • Create a trigger to disallow rmbranch of a UCM guarded branch
    that has any change set versions on it
        (any version other than branch version zero)

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Cleartool rmver command execution validates for interested   *
    * version before deleting the selected version. However,       *
    * similar validation was missing while executing rmbranch      *
    * command.                                                     *
