Hi Sean,
do you mean with Shell the Windows Explorer Shell or so you mean the Command Shell?

In the command shell it's possible.
The command is called scm list changesets -C <componentname> -r <repository> -u <username>
C:\>scm list changesets -C "ALM_Tools" -r jazz -u EICKEL_S
Change sets:

There are more items available. Use --maximum option to return more number of items.

In the Windows Explorer Shell this is not possible.
The Windows Explorer Shell is made for easy working and so the thought was that knowledge for components and such administrative stuff should be not too complex.

If you need this I would suggest open an Enhancement Request.

Hope this helps,

what you could do is using the history function. There you get some information about change sets of this components. The history can be used even through the windows explorer shell

Geoffrey Clemm commented Oct 14 '13, 1:07 a.m.

How do you invoke the history function to get change sets of a component from the windows explorer shell?   (You can get the history of an individual file, but I didn't see a way to get the change set history of a component).

Hi Geoff,
thanks that I can give you some trick :D
You have to load the component as root folder with the "browse" function :

now the important thing is to hook the root folder itself:

After this is done right click on the "component folder" and choose "show history"

The history appears but now you have to switch to "component history":

et voila:

hope this helps,

Thanks Simon ... I should have looked up at the toolbar (:-).   Note that you can do this for any file/directory in a component (i.e. ask for the history of the component containing that file/folder), so you don't have to load the component root directory itself.
