Viewing the status of a stream during scanning

You can view whether a stream is locked or unlocked during a source code data scan. An Enterprise Extensions feed is created when you connect to a repository using Engineering Workflow Management in the Eclipse client. When you disconnect from the repository, the feed is no longer available.


  1. To view the status of the stream, in the Team Artifacts view, expand Feeds.
  2. Right-click Enterprise Extensions Events on host, where host is the repository where the source code data scan occurs.
  3. Click Open to display the source code data scan status events in the editor.


The scanning status event indicates whether a stream is locked or unlocked during the source code data scan. The event also lists the name of the stream that you scanned and the status of the stream. You can use scanning events to determine if any streams are still locked when a server is restarted.

Source code data scan status events are stored in the repository and have the same expiration as other component events. The default expiration is set to 14 days, but you can modify the expiration for the events in the Server Advanced Properties.

The default interval for updating the feed is 180 seconds. When the interval expires, the feed queries all Enterprise Extensions events created since the last query. You can modify the interval in the properties of the Enterprise Extensions feed.

You can enable or disable Enterprise Extensions scanning status alerts from the Engineering Workflow Management Eclipse notification preferences.
