Link Attribute to Source Control Snapshot?

Victoria Edgar (2335) | asked Apr 23 '13, 8:37 a.m.

I would like to create an attribute which is linked to a source control snapshot.  i.e. Field "Found In" I would like to lookup the snapshot list of releases as opposed to creating and maintaing an enumeration list.

Could someone advise how this can be done?

This is the best idea I heard in months.
Unfortunately, I doubt whether this is possible (perhaps there is an SDK based solution available).

Victoria, the way RTC supports this is by creating a Release from a build (in the Eclipse client) as shown below:

Once you have done that, you can select the Release Name in the Release Tab of the Project Editor like below

You can also enter stub releases here such as R4 M2 to be able to select them in the Found In attribute. You will find that you can navigate from the release to the build result.

An attribute on the snapshot is currently not supported for all I know. If you feel this is needed, please create an enhancement request and provide your use case.
