Loading a change set

Sean Burke (3789131218) | asked Jan 29 '14, 7:06 p.m.
We have a group that wants to be able to load files by a change set and have nothing else but those files in the workspace.  I know you can load the stream and RTC picks with than pick up in the pending changes view all new changes but is there a way to load only a specific change set and nothing else

There is a enhancement request opened for this...

You could use the command line and do the following...
1) List the changes in the change set : scm list changes <changeset uuid>
2) Get the files from the change set : scm get change <change set> <change uuid> <destination folder>. For pre 4.0.5 cli, the command to use is 'scm changeset extract ...'

Note: This just downloads the file to a specific folder and the folder structure is not maintained. You have to do extra processing to get the folder structure as 'list changes' has the structure in it. Also, the folder will not be tracked by RTC.
