Can RTC SCM check in and check out files from the Web UI or must the command line be used for Source Control Management?

I am using RTC version 6.0.6, iFix004, no global config.


If so, how do I check in a XML file using the RTC SCM Web UI?

The Web-UI does not let you perform SCM operations against your repository workspace, so you can't do a true check-in of file changes into your repository workspace. You would have to use the CLI, or a rich client such as Eclipse or Visual Studio.

However, the Web-UI does let you add new files, and edit existing files directly on a stream. You would navigate to the stream page, click on the component you want, then click on the 'Repository Files' tab. From there, at the top right, you at see a button called "Add Files" which lets you pick a file on disk, or another button called "create and edit a new text file". You can also edit existing files right in the web-UI. There is also the ability to associate a work item to the change set that gets created when you make these changes.

Hi David,


Thank you for your prompt response. I have the Eclipse client running and will focus on using it to do file check-ins and check-outs.

From your response, I think I understand that any files added and/or edited using the Web-UI are not introduced into the current latest stream. To change the current stream, I will need to do that via the Eclipse client.
