 If you are looking for the uuid's of streams, workspaces, components etc. I think the best way to accomplish this would be using the command line with the -u y switches.  The VS plugin includes a copy of the scmtools directory which you can use to issue the command.  For example:

C:\IBM\Rational Team Concert Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE\3rd Party\sc
mtools\eclipse>scm -u y list workspaces -r vinyl
(1011:_UR1hQFBNEeKHgI1QuVhlPw) "Aspect Stream WASADM" wasadm
(1012:_apmZ4AfmEeKjWs6iTeOtnA) "Aspect Stream Workspace" crawfomj

 Hi Devid, you access the View Jazz Properties menu from solution explorer in VS.

Oh, thanks Josh! I didn't know about this. But this is not, what I need. I would like to know UUID of workspace or UUID of stream and in "Team Artifacts", there is no context menu with "Jazz Properties".

Also I would like to convert UUID back to human readable string. Is it possible?

 Hi Devid,  you can see the UUID's of objects in the VS plugin by right clicking on a resource and selecting view Jazz Properties and expanding the show uuid's tree:

Hi Josh,

I did not find "view Jazz Properties" in VS RTC plug-in on any object. For example this is, how context menu looks on workspace:


I'm using RTC client 4.0.2.

And, is it possible convert UUID back to "human readable description"?

Thanks Josh. I found a quicker way. On stream click with right mouse button, select Copy URL. UUID is on the end of the url.


Ok, this is a way, how get UUID from object. But more important question (for me) is, how to convert UUID to object (in VS plug-in or on command line, I don't care). Is RTC able to do this?

You can use the menu action Team Concert > Open Team Artifact to open the URL. If you've pasted in the URL for the workspace, it will open the workspace.

Oh. Ok, thanks!
