RTC code delivery - Modifying existing change set files in RTC selectively

Ajay Tamboli (1315) | asked Nov 14 '19, 9:53 a.m.

We have a concern when submitting / delivering code to RTC. 

Let's say a developer submits a change set with 6 source files for review. The lead reviews and provides correction comments against 4 source files. Now the developer has to incorporate these corrections and resubmit the 4 corrected files along with the other 2 unchanged files. 
Is there a way in RTC SCM to modify an existing change set and resubmit for review? Otherwise, as it stands now, the developers are having to resubmit a new change set every time with all the files creating clutter in the work item / story.

Looking for advice on best practice.

In 7.0, you will be able to "duplicate" a change set, and then make further modifications to the duplicate.

But there are advantages to just creating the new change sets and attaching to the work item.   That way it is easier for the reviewer to see what has changed since their last review.  Also, in the "change summary" view, you can have RTC merge those change sets into a single logical view of all those change sets.   So that lets you see both the incremental and the combined view of those changes.
