SCM cmdline check in identical ?

Norman Dignard (356679139) | asked Aug 27 '19, 12:52 p.m.

 Does the scm cmdline support the check in of identical files? 

We are porting our code from a Rational Apex env into JAZZ in which the legacy env allowed for this.  
In importing code into JAZZ and creating of jazz equivalent baselines, it appears it does not allow for check in of identical files.

Just for interest's sake, why do you want to checkin a new unchanged file version?

We're migrating one of our major systems from their legacy Rational Apex environment to JAZZ. In doing so we need to preserve the baseline integrity between the old and new environments as we need to support and maintain this operational system.    The legacy system although unconventional in today's SCM systems, allowed the mix and match of files that make up component baselines. In moving forward with JAZZ use, they are refactoring their code base to adapt to their new tooling.

One suggestion:  Add a property to the file, such as the version-id from the legacy system, which should allow you to check in a new version whose content is the same as the predecessor.   And that legacy version-id might even end up being useful.
