How to import trunk/braches/tags


Raphael Weisser (101195) | asked Oct 25 '10, 4:00 a.m.
Hello,

I tried to import a SVN-Repository via dumpfile into Jazz SCM. Therefor I used the instructions for importing SVN in RTC, described in the information center(german).
But I can't make the same, as instructed - because it's not clearly written to follow the instructions.

If you are importing the trunk, create a new component for it.

But then I have two components: trunkcomponent, standardcomponent.
While importing I selected only the trunk-folder from dump to import.

After finished importing the trunk via dumpfile, I prepared importing branches and tags. First I create a new Workspace how described in information center. Then I tried to modify as described:
In the Search for components window, select Component baseline and search for baselines whose names begin with "Base of".
From the list of baselines, select the baseline whose name contains the name of the Subversion folder that contains the branch.


But there aren't any baselines to choose, only components.

Thanks in advance for your help

I'd like to know the answer to this as well as I am finding essentially the same problem.

I am not familiar with the document you mentioned. I do have a wiki page
that describes how to use the importer at
https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/SCMImport. See if that helps you and
, if you have any questions you can post them and I will answer them as
best I can.

Thank you very much.

After several attempts I was able to import my trunk as MainComponent and the branches in other components referencing the mainBaseline (I think so)

One question wasn't answered on the wikipage.
In RTC Tags are realizied as snapshots.
But how can I import a tag-folder, so that I get a snapshot as importresult?

The importer only supports the import of a single component so only baselines are created. Snapshots are a mechanism for grouping baselines from multiple components. If you wanted to have snapshots corresponding to the imported baselines, you would need to create them manually.
