Getting UUIDs for files IN SCM


Harry Koehnemann (30115238) | asked Feb 07 '12, 12:29 a.m.
Is there a way to generate the UUID for all files in a stream, either in the client or SCM command line? Some SCM list commands appear to display the UUIDs while the file command does not:

scm -a y -u y list ws -- shows UUIDs
scm -a y -u y list remotefiles -- no UUIDs

Thanks.

Hi,

can you please check if this work item helps: https://jazz.net/jazz/web/projects/Rational%20Team%20Concert#action=com.ibm.team.workitem.viewWorkItem&id=190647

I am not aware of a capability you requested. It is possible to look at the itemID and the StateID in the property of an individual file. It is possible to write an extension. In general there are requests to enhance RTC to be better able to identify the "version" of a file for audit capabilities. I couldn't find a work item. You might want to create an enhancement request with your use case.

Thanks Ralph. Yes that task you referenced would resolve my problem. It was completed last week so I need to get an RTC 4.0 after M7 to try it.
