History of one versionable


Clemens Hübner (1112) | asked Apr 08 '16, 3:29 a.m.
Hi everybody,

I'm trying to get the history of one versionable in a component using the Java API, in detail I need the informations who changed the file when with what comment.
I'm getting lost in ChangeSet, HistoryEntry, etc. Can someone give me a hint for this?

Thank you!

 Normally, when you request the history of one versionable, you would get an ChangeHistoryEntry[] entries (array).


You can then loop this, and get the information you need (repo is your :

ITeamRepository repo; // you should have this already
IAuditableClient audCli = (IAuditableClient) repo.getClientLibrary(IAuditableClient.class);
for (ChangeHistoryEntry changeEntry : entries)
{
  ICangeSetHandle csh = changeEntry.getChangeSet();
  IChangeSet cs = repo.itemManager().fetchCompleteItem(handle, ItemManager.DEFAULT, monitor);
  IContributorHandle conHdl = cs.getAuthor(); // this would get you the author. Only the handle though. You need to resolve it as below
  IContributor con = audCli.fetchCurrentAuditable(conHdl, .......... )
  cs.getLastChangeDate(); // get the change time stamp
  cs.getComment(); // get the comment
}


I hope this helps, else just ask again :).
