Stream checkout by date and time.


Rick Rineholt (3152) | asked Apr 18 '09, 9:23 a.m.
Is it possible to create a new workspace from a stream as the stream existed on a specific date and time? Lets assume there were no snapshots at that point.

It would then be nice that all existing updates changeset would be listed to bring the workspace to the current stream, but not necessarily that important requirement.

Thanks.

You can do this by hand, by creating a workspace that flows with that
stream, and then in each component, open the history of that component
and drop all change sets after that date.

Dropping the change sets is easy in the GUI (just multi-select from the
most recent change set to the first one after the selected date), but it
would be a bit tedious if you have lots of components.

I've created work item 78895 to make this easier by allowing the date to
be specified at workspace creation time.

Cheers,
Geoff
