How and where can I find the delivered date for a changeset 

I understand that once a workitem is associated with a change set the information is saved in the WI and that is not same as the changeset delivered date

If you show the history of a component in the Eclipse based RTC, you can hover over the change set icon and get a hover that shows both the modify date and the date the change set was added to the change history. This may not be quite what you want since change histories can be shared across workspaces and streams so the date may not apply to all streams (see for the details).

Note: Read David's comment below for a summary of a feature that was added in RTC 5.0.1 that also provides this information.

This is to add onto what Michael said above:

We have added similar functionality to what you are asking in Story 304215. See This story will provide "Added By" and "Date Added" columns to the History view in Eclipse and Visual Studio, as well as the corresponding CLI commands. This Story has been completed for RTC 5.0.1 Sprint 1. See the following wiki for UI screenshots of this feature: This story also fixes what Michael said above where change histories could be shared across workspaces/streams resulting in incorrect "added on" dates.

Hi Karthik,
If you open a work item that has a changeset associated with it and go to the Links tab, you'll see the changeset listed along with the date and time the changeset was delivered.  I'm not sure what you mean by "that is not same as the changeset delivered date?"

Unfortunately, this date is the date that the changeset was last modified. It is possible that the change set wasn't delivered to a particular stream until much later.

Thanks for that clarification Chris!
