update ccase skipElement

Updates the data files that are exported from Rational® ClearCase®.


The update command with the skipElement subcommand removes specified file elements from the intermediate data files that are extracted by the export ccase command.


  • To run ccc update ccase skipElement on the command line:
    ccc update ccase skipElement [ -d  |  --dataDir ] data directory [ --viewTags view tag [...]  |  --viewTagsFile view tags file ] [ [ -p  |  --filePath ] element paths file  |  element path [...] ]


    • ccc update ccase skipElement -d C:\ExportedData -p c:\filesToSkip.txt
    • ccc update ccase skipElement -d C:\ExportedData dir1/foo dir2/bar
    • ccc update ccase skipElement -d C:\ExportedData --viewTagsFile C:\views.txt dir1/foo dir2/bar
    • The filePathFormat in filesToSkip.txt must be the same as it is in ExportCCaseLog. For example, if you exported M:\myview\myvob\folder1 to c:\exportdData, you can skip folder1\dir1\foo and folder1\dir2\bar, and add dir1/foo and dir2/bar to FilestoSkip.txt.
    • Also, versions that are listed in ignoredFiles.txt are already skipped, so you do not need to run SkipElement.
