Subject says it all: how do you override a deliver precondition from the scm command line like you can in the Eclipse GUI?

No, there isn't a way to override process preconditions/actions in the cli. I thought there was a defect on this but couldn't find it. Please raise a defect. Thanks.

This would be an enhancement request. The SCM command line is supposed to be the SCM command line and not configure the operational behavior.

However, you can configure the operational behavior in the UI and use another user with a specific role, where the role overrides the operational behavior configuration in the process configuration. That way the operational behavior would not apply to that (automation) user and there would be no problem.

The cli is functionally deficient when compared to the gui. Correcting a functional deficiency is not an RFE, it's a bug.

This is not an automation use case. As a normal user I find it easier for certain tasks to use the command line (shocking, I know). I should not have to operate as a special user to perform a task in the cli that I could perform as myself in the gui.

As you please, however it is a SCM Command Line and not a Project Administration Commandline. SCM refers to software configuration management.

I'm not seeking to configure operational behaviors, merely to allow for overriding delivery preconditions, as one can do from the Team Advisor view in the GUI.
