Hi Vijay,
I am just wondering why you want to get such information. Do you want to restore that snapshot? We do not recommend to look directly into database.

I agree with Krzysztof.

The database is not a valid information source and to access any data the tool and its API should be used.

However. If you delete a snapshot, the snapshot is deleted. There is no information about the snapshot and whatever history. However, the source code and the baselines it selected are still in the SCM repository.

 My situation is:

One of my EndUser informed me that she could not find the snapshot which was published to RAM.
Also She says that, the concerned snapshot was not created in RTC, but if the snapshot is not created in RTC, we cannot publish the snapshot details to RAM.

I tried to search the repository using snapshot name but could not find it. I doubt that the snapshot might have been deleted by the user.
For this purpose I wanted to know where can i found the snapshot details? even if at the DB level. It is purely only for the consultation purpose.
Can you suggest the ways where can I find it?
