Create intermediate baseline

Norman Dignard (356684157) | asked Nov 07 '14, 2:46 p.m.

In one of our projects a user created a number of changesets, delivering them as they were completed.

In this process they where to create a baseline however one baseline was inadvertantely omitted.


component a , changeset 1 - baseline ABC

component a, changeset 2  - <baseline omitted>

component a, changeset 3 - baseline DFG

They want to create a baseline for the changeset 2 delivery.  Can this be done and if so how?

does it work to create a repository workspace with Component A baseline ABC, set a flow relation to a stream containing change set 2 (and beyond), then accept only changeset 2 to that workspace and stamp the missing baseline there?

In this senerio after creating the baseline, would/could it be delivered back to the main stream? I asume that as there is no code changes, all that would be delivered is a baseline label.  Would this "later" deliver supercede what is the latest on the main stream?


main stream - BL1 (change1), BL3(change2 & change3)

workspace config - BL1 + change2, create BL2, deliver back to main

What does the main latest now reflect  BL2 with change3 now gone?

A "deliver" will never cause any change sets to be removed from the target stream, but delivering a baseline to a stream can re-order the change sets in the target stream.
