I am interested to know why don't we have URL for Baseline as there is for Stream.

When we right click on Stream there is option to COPY URL which is not there for Baseline
URL looks like below


as of I know this URL looks similar to the resource URL for Test case,Requirement ,Test Plan etc. which we get in the the OSLC API's

For what reason would you want to copy the URL of a baseline?

My guess would be, noone has had a use for that today and it was simply not implemented.

With respect to one application which uses Snapshot URL as entry point and which later fetches all Baselines of component involved ,in the same way if we have baseline URL then I can give that as input for the application and process all change sets involved.

The 'Copy URL' context menu action did not exist on baseline nodes in Eclipse prior to RTC 6.0 because we had no Web UI page to show the baseline in. Since RTC 6.0 you will notice there is now a baseline web page, and a 'Copy URL' Eclipse context menu action.
