Deleted File History using RTC shell client

satish chandra (111921) | asked Oct 24 '14, 8:39 a.m.

I am using RTC shell client and its version is 4.0.4.
The requirement how can I get the history of a file which has been deleted using shell client or a webclient.

To eloborate
1) I have deleted a file and delivered it to a stream
2) Now I would like to get the file and see the history of the file what are the previous changes on it.

I am able to get the file of the version at the time of its deletion but Iam unable to get the history of the file itself.

How can I achieve this ?

Since a file is under source control, it is not "deleted", but rather is "deleted from a particular configuration" (e.g. deleted from a particular workspace or particular stream).   The easiest way to find the history of a deleted file is to select/configure a workspace from which that file has not been deleted, and ask for the history of that file from there. 

If you cannot find/configure such a workspace, you can use the "Search -> Jazz_Source_Control -> Change_Sets..." in the Eclipse client to find the change set that deleted the file, and ask for the history from that.   I'm not aware of a corresponding search command in the shell client.
