Customize Loadrule for SandBox based on Projects

Dhivya Mohandas (812) | asked Nov 26 '14, 12:02 a.m.
I am using IBM RTC. I want to load some of my projects in a component to a particular location in my c drive (which is different from my sandbox location) . is there a way to customize the loadrule to meet this ?

Load rules specify the layout of items within a sandbox, they aren't used to place a sandbox at a specified location. You should use the load wizard to specify that it should use a load rules file and specify the location of your sandbox to be c:/sandboxworkspace.

Jazz SCM always loads into a sandbox. With respect to Eclipse, the sandbox does not have to be your workspace. It can be any folder.

Loadrules are explained here: and you will see that the path is always relative to a sandbox. You can use 'Load as' to load your data to disk and once you have done that, you can generate load rules from them to get started.

You can have multiple sandboxes, but always only one active at a given time.

Not sure this answer helps. What is the use case?

Thanks for the Reply..

Yes you are correct SandBox can be any folder. In my case, i have component , in which i have to load a particular project to a location(say c:/MyFolder) which is outside my sandbox location (say c:/sandboxworkspcae), in this case , i cannot use sandboxRelativePath ..

 is there a way to handle this using loadrule ?

You can have multiple sandboxes. You can only load items into sandbox, so if you want to load a component at c:/MyFolder/foo, you'll probably load at c:/MyFolder, making MyFolder a sandbox.

You can find the loadrules explained here, but basically they describe the layout of the different items within your sandbox: c:/sandboxworkspace 

EDIT: Sorry, was too quick, saw that someone already answered this.
