Archiving and restoring configurations

You can archive streams and baselines that are no longer in use so that they are not shown in the list of configurations. Archiving a configuration does not delete it; configurations cannot be deleted. You can restore an archived configuration so that it is visible and available for use by you or other team members.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you are familiar with project areas, components (if supported), baselines, streams, and change sets (if supported).
  • Ensure that you are logged in to a project.
  • Configuration management capabilities must be enabled for the project.
  • You must have permission to archive configurations.

About this task

Archiving a configuration removes it from the list of active configurations. It is common to archive a configuration when team members no longer work in it, or if the configuration is not a flow target for other configurations. You might archive a baseline that was created for a review, when the baseline is no longer required.
Note: You can archive all the configurations in a component at the same time by archiving the component. See the related topic.

You cannot archive a baseline if another configuration has a dependency on it. You cannot archive a stream that is the flow target of another configuration.

Procedure

  1. On the toolbar of a lifecycle management product, click Administration Administration menu > Manage Components and Configurations.
