Hello Team

I have a usecase where :
I need to remove the specific string  example : #Revision : from all the files in the RTC component A.

Is there any filter in RTC eclipse client where i can remove the specific strings from all the files in RTC component

or any idea how i can i do it without getting any new changeset to the file ??

thank You :)

Being able to change SCM content without a trace would prevent the solution from being trustworthy in audits. So my assumption is that this is not possible.

Hello Ralph

The Strings inside the file i am referring to basically the comments .

So is there any way to remove any unnecessary comments section from RTC eclipse client ??

Thank You

What part of "not possible" is unclear? A change to a file is a change to a file, comment or not comment. I believe this should not be possible.

Yes, making a change to a file without a change set is impossible.
