Question about component renaming

Kevin Lou (311924) | asked Sep 17 '13, 9:47 a.m.
We have a component name "CompA" that is owned by TeamA; 
Now TeamB wants to work on the project with component "CompB" that is created from a baseline of "CompA". 
TeamA and TeamB are from different consulting companies so we do not want them to see each other's work. 

I am having several questions about how to set this up:
  - Is it possible to rename the new component (CompB) without affecting the original one (CompA)?
  - Is it possible to make the CompA and CompB owned by two different teams?

So basically what I want is to disconnect the two components after I created the new one. Any help/suggestion is appreciated.

A component has a single global name, so renaming it renames it in all contexts that it appears.
So to have two different components, you just need to create a second component, named CompB.
You would then load the appropriate baseline of CompA into the file system, disconnect the sandbox from the workspace, and then put the file tree under version control in compB.
