How to change ownership of component with LSCM

David Frenzel (153) | asked May 17 '19, 1:16 p.m.


When using "lscm create component" the ownership of the component is set to the user id creating the component. I need to change the owner of the component to the project the component is in. How can I achieve this?

scm set attributes -C/--component <arg ...> [--name <arg>] ([--ownedby <arg>]
                   [--teamarea-scope] [--visibility <arg>]) [--process-area
                   <arg> | --accessgroup <arg>] [-r/--repository-uri <arg>]
                   [-u/--username <arg> -P/--password <arg> | -u/--username
                   <arg> --password-file <arg> | --certificate <arg>
                   -P/--password <arg> | --smartCard -u/--username <arg> |

                   --kerberos | --integratedWindows]

If you are setting the owner of a component to a team area, you would have to run the following command:
scm set attributes -C <component_itemId_or_name> --visibility <teamarea> --process-area <teamarea_itemid_or_name>
--visibility option values could be any of the following: public, private, teamarea, projectarea, accessgroup, or archived.
For help, run 'scm help set attr'.

I went through the docs once again and figured that --visibility is not the correct option. However, --ownedby is what I was looking for. I want to set the owner to be the proect area but this doesn't seem to work.

lscm set attributes --component <component_uuid> --ownedby <project_area_name> --visibility <project_area_name> -r <repository>
When I run this command the visibility is set to project scoped but the owner remains the user and not the project area. What am I doing wrong?

You are right, that is to change the visibility.
To change the owner you just need to do the following:
lscm set attributes --component <component_uuid> --ownedby <project_area_name> -r <repository>
