Error description

  • Headline:
    Lock obsolete a foundation baseline of a child stream results in
    all baselines on that stream not being displayed in the baseline
    browser.
    
    APAR Error Description:
    Abstract: If a component baseline that happens to be also a
    foundation baseline of a stream is locked-obsolete, then the
    component tree browser with the 'Show obsolete baselines'
    tick-box unset, hides not only that baseline, but also and
    incorrectly *all* the baselines of the stream of which the just
    locked-obsoleted baseline is the foundation baseline.
    
    Problem: Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open the Component tree browser of a component that has
    baselines in at least a stream
    2. In the Tools / Filtering Options.. pop-up window, make sure
    the 'Show obsolete baselines' tick-box is clear (not set)
    3. Lock obsolete the foundation baseline of the stream.
    4. Refresh the Component tree browser window
    5. The just locked-obsoleted baselines disappears from the
    window, but also *all* the non-locked-obsolete baselines of that
    stream and the stream itself do.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    - In the Component tree browser window there is no known
    workaround.
    - From command line, this was fixed with APAR IC42113, the
    'cleartool lsbl -tree' command correctly hides the
    locked-obsolete foundation baseline, and correctly lists the
    non-locked-obsolete following baselines on that stream.

    Lock obsolete a foundation baseline of a child stream
    results in all baselines on that stream not being displayed
    in the base. If a component baseline that happens to be also
    a foundation baseline of a stream is locked-obsolete, then
    the component tree browser with the "Show obsolete
    baselines" tick-box unset, hides not only that baseline, but
    also and incorrectly *all* the baselines of the stream of
    which the just locked-obsoleted baseline is the foundation
    baseline.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions 7.1.2.8 and 8.0.0.4
