Using the CLI in RTC, how do I create a Unique Repository Workspace Name for each build? My area runs a daily build consisting of changesets for a product for one days work. I have a single build definition today, with a single repository workspace name, for ex.,WLV25DB DEVELOPMENT aar25 Workspace. This will allow me to keep only the latest set of source parts and listings for one days build. I would like to be able to programmatically create a uniquely named repository workspace for each daily build, name the workspace with an identifying character and date/time, that would contain the changsets for each days build, then execute the build definition to generate the text decks needed. Can you help me accomplish this?

You don't, you use one repu workspace and if it is a public build you create a snapshot.

If you want to do this - which is absolutely pointless, because the repository workspace is ont relevant - the snapshots and baselines are, and you can recreate a repository workspace from it - you can use the SCM commandline for it. I am not sure how you would change the workspace the build uses.

However, I am convinced that this is not what you really want to do and that you have not understood how RTC build works and why you don't need to create these workspaces. You should try to understand that first. From my perspective run the build on the same workspace and creating a snapshot is what you are really after.
