how to change owner of workspace using SCM command ?

praveen patidar (8613044) | asked Nov 25 '12, 9:11 p.m.
I need to create bulk user workspaces and will have to assign them as owner. However I saw there is no option for the create workspace with owner specified as a other valid contributor. or there is no option to change the workspace owner using the scm command. I am using perl to automate these things. Can you please let me know if there is any option to do so?

Hi Praveen.. We are trying to achieve the same thing. Did you have any luck. Could you please share.

Have you tried my suggestion of the propertylist/propertyset subcommand for workspace?

Deepti Rao commented Jan 17 '13, 2:43 p.m.

The only command on property is

scm property <get|list|remove|set>  <files..> and not on workspace?

The command line has the "propertylist" and "propertyset" subcommands to set these values.

lscm workspace propertylist/propertyset

Using those, you can see the current properties of a workspace and set them to new values.

I have tried the property command as well but not able to get the property file for the workspace .

Can you elaborate about your use of the property subcommand? What sort of output do you get when you try to get the properties or set them?

I think the feature is available in RTC 4.0.1 scm. command.

try below command on the RTC 4.0.1 and let me know the results.

lscm workspace propertylist -r myrepository workspaceNameAliasOrUUID lscm workspace propertyset -r myrepository ownedby "new _owner" workspaceNameAliasOrUUID
