How to Crosslink Source Files in RTC?


Brian Barritt (111) | asked Nov 17 '09, 4:24 p.m.
Consider a software development organization that has a software project A, whose file structure must include two files from a wholly independent software project B. Any time project B delivers a new version of either of these two dependent files to its parent stream, we want to automatically accept and copy that change into our project A. But, our developers in project A should not be able to edit those dependent files (they should appear as read-only).

AccuRev supports such situations with Crosslinks and Symbolic links (http://www.accurev.com/cross-links-symbolic-links.html). However, RTC does not seem to support this? Our team requires this feature -- please help!

RTC 2.0.0.2 (coming soon!) will support symbolic links.

Or you can try to use permissions to obtain a workflow that you want. See
