Does Rational Team Concert have a similar approach to keyword expansion of SVN

Verdan Salay (18817) | asked Nov 06 '15, 6:19 a.m.

Does RTC support something close to keyword expansion of SVN?
if not, then is there a way for RTC place the version of the file inside the file itself during delivery or loading.
I need it to get track of what version of a specific file is currently running in my system.

Has anyone did this before? hoping to get some article or options on how can this be achieve

The simple answer is: No. RTC SCM does, as far as I can tell not have this capability. I am not aware that it could be done, since all expansions in a file e.g. due to some generation, would end up in the file and, if the file is changed, cause a new change set.

I have seen this kind of capability in the past, but because the files are affected, I found it always a bit dubious. You can see information about the history in the SCM system and RTC has now a human readable version number, if you want it, that could be used for a build report.
