Reverse changeset

Norman Dignard (356673129) | asked Apr 17 '14, 12:08 p.m.

I'm trying to clarify the Reverse functionality in RTC as the docs are not quite clear.

From the user manual, this is done from the users repo workspace - show history and select the changeset to "Reverse".   In the user Pending changes they then get a Pending Patches object to accept.

What is actually happening in this process?

Our (perhaps incorrect) assumption is that the target stream of the initial delivery would have the change backed out. Does this affect the users dev repo/sandbox?

Does this reverse function remove the change from a baselined component ? (Assume that the change was part of the baseline.)

Can a reversed changeset be re-delivered?

The Reverse function calculates the changes needed to reverse (undo) the original change and shows those changes as a patch. The user can accept the patch into her repository workspace and deliver the reversal change set to propogate the reversal to the stream. Reversing the change in and of itself does not "undo" anything; it simply creates a new change set. From that point on, the change set is like any other.
