Ask a question

specifying stream by uuid for compare and lock commands sometimes fails with "invalid item type; expected stream, received workspace". why?

Problem running 'lock acquire':

Invalid item type for "_coEvYBkWEeKrjsmMOIX_gQ". Expected type "stream" but specified item was of type "workspace". Try 'scm help lock acquire' for more information.

I've seen this happen with both scm lock acquire, scm lock release, and scm compare, and it is driving me nuts :)  It works if I specify the stream by name, but I'd rather use the UUID as names are somewhat mutable.

This is a bug in the command line tool,  I hit it once myself.  It is currently tracked by defect 250337

The work around mentioned in the defect comment 2 is to find the ~/.jazz-scm/aliases file under your home directory and remove the entry in it for that workspace.

If you are able to reproduce this reliably, it would be a good idea to comment in the defect with your steps.
