How to create a baseline based on a given date or in the past like six months back, 1 year back.

anup Gaur (1392444) | asked Jul 28 '20, 2:54 a.m.

 We have been using RTC for may years now and we are running on windows. We are using CLM 6.0.6 with FIx 003. For audit and compliance purpose and also for history keeping we want to create baselines in the past. Many projects have not created baselines at all and we want them to create a baseline let's based on the code which was six months back, 1 year back etc. Is there a way to do this.

If not is there a way to load a code in repository workspace which is based on a certain date. So that we can load and create a baseline.

Any programmatic way to do all this. There are many project with streams and components. 

Any help is much appreciated.

Have you looked into the operation history? The recent EWM/RTC versions allow to look at the operation history and then it is possible to, for instance, create a repository workspace for such a point in time. You can then create a baseline on that repository workspace and deliver the baseline to the stream. I am not sure if this history is available for earlier than when the feature became available.

I can't believe that there are no baselines. How can you work without them? If you use builds you get them for free too.
If there are baselines you can add or replace a component based on such baselines and then create a new one for a stream if necessary.
