Developer A made a change set, and developer B accepted this change set and delivered it to stream. Then how developer C know it is developer B but not A who delivered the change set. And how developer C when this change set is delivered, I mean the exact dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss.

unfortunately I didn't find any possibility to get this information.
You only see the creater of the Change Set because a Change Set is sitting on a component.
You can only see the history of a component but not of a Stream.

From a Stream you can see the events but delivering a change set seems not to be such an event.

An Enhancement Request would fit here I think.

Hope this helps,

Do you require a work item to be associated with your change set when you deliver changes? The person who delivered the change set and the date/time is recorded in the Links tab:

Hope that helps,

That is the owner of the change set. There isn't a record of who delivered the change set to the stream. The closest is the added by field that is available when hovering over change sets in the context of a stream/workspace. It's close in that it records who first added the change set to history. It wouldn't handle the case where user 1 delivers to stream A and user 2 accepts from stream A and delivers that change set to stream B. In stream B, it would still say added by user 1.

Hi He Huang, we added some functionality that helps with your use case in Story 304215 (See This story will provide "Added By" and "Date Added" columns to the History view in Eclipse and Visual Studio, as well as the corresponding CLI commands. This will let you see exactly when a change set was added to a stream and by who. To view the history, select a component under the stream you are interested in and invoke the "Show" --> "History" context menu action.

This Story has been completed for RTC 5.0.1 Sprint 1. See the following wiki for UI screenshots of this feature:
