Is it possible to create a link to a file for a specific item id plus state?


Currently we can create a link in alm for a file/item id.


Can we add extra parameter &stateId= and create a link


For example : i have an item a.c in state (2)/version 2. I can only view the latest file that is version 2 in alm browser link.


is it possible to view version 1 by adding state id as additioonal parameter in the above link.



We also tried to do that however, no matter what we give as state, it alwys redirects to latest version of the file.


below is the link to a file i.e. a.c version 2


if i add a state id as a suffix with state as (1) or (2), it is making no difference


it will always redirect to

In Snapshot, as usually only one version of a file will be present, it does not make a difference.Even if we add an extra parameter state id in front of snapshot or stream, it is not making a difference.
For example :
Here state id are different , but when we click it will always point to a same file present in Snapshot.

Same for streams and snapshots, link always point to a latest version of the file and does not get affected if we add state id as a parameter.
