Can scm cli reference baselines that have '@' in their name?


Peter Vohmann (2135) | asked Sep 11 '13, 11:39 a.m.
Does the [l]scm utility have a way to quote the '@' character in selectors?

We have imported data from clearcase, i.e. using clearcase synchronizer.
This has created baseline names of the form 'lbtype:LABEL@\vob'.
Unfortunately, "@" is treated as a repo separator and truncates the baseline name:
D:\sandbox> lscm accept -b "lbtype:LABEL_22@\vob"
Unresolved baselines:
  lbtype:LABEL_22
Problem runing 'accept':
Unable to resolve all baselines for "user_workspace".
The @repo part is documented for some operations that do not relate to a current workspace,
regardless if I specify a repository with -r switch or not:
D:\sandbox> lscm baseline propls -r https://myrepo:9443/ccm "lbtype:LABEL_22@\vob"

You can use "alternate" means of referencing the baseline:

-b Indicates that the selectors refer to baslines and the specified baselines must be accepted. To specify a baseline, use its name, alias, or UUID in the list of selectors.

Alias could be done by listing the baselines, the alias is the numeric value enclosed in ().
