 Hi all,

I am writing custom precondition for RTC to validate the snapshot and baseline name . Basically I am trying to implement naming convention for snapshot and baseline.

I explored on the api to get snapshot name but did find anything. Could you please let me (sample code would be very much helpful) how to get the snapshot and baseline name in server side precondition

Thank you all in advance

Here and in the related posts is some example code for baselines. most of the code should be common and be available in client and server API.

A snapshot is a IBaselineSetHandle or IBaselineSet and you should be able to find some hints here:

 Hi Ralph,
Thank you for quick response.
I need server side precondition, so that user can follow specific format to create snapshot and baselines.For Snapshot I am able to get snapshot name but I am not able to get baseline name. Which operationId we need to use to get Baseline name. Sample code would be very much helpful.

I think all the classes and methods you would need for SCM Handling would be in*;

remember this is an object oriented system, there is not a 'single' api, but a collection of objects, methods and data items.

 Hello Guys,

I am able to fetch the list of snapshots from a given stream programmatically but I am unable to fetch the list of components within a snapshot. I need to copy some files from one component in the snapshot to a component outside the snapshot(in another stream)...

Please help...

When you have a snapshot (IBaselineSet) you will need to fetch the full IBaseline objects (from the handles of IBaselineSet.getBaselines()). From there, you can get the component using IBaseline.getComponent().
