checkout all files based on timestamp in ELM stream/component

James Cheung (671116) | asked Nov 02 '23, 4:29 p.m.

 Hi all,

Is there a way to checkout all files from a stream/component based on timestamp? Our objective is to checkout file on 1/1/2019, 1/1/2020, 1/2/2021, ..., 1/1/2023. Since we didn't create snapshot on those time periods, could we still check out based on timestamp? Or could we create snapshot back in time?

I am not aware of such a capability. I also do not understand what the value of such a capability would be. You want to be able to have consistent snapshots/baselines e.g. based on a working build. Everything delivered until noon is usually not anything of value, in my opinion. 

It is probably possible to use the Plain Java Client Libraries to iterate a stream configuration to find the information you are looking for.

Thx Ralph for the help. We would like to retrieve very old years back versions which we didn't do regular snapshot.
