Setting line delimiter handling

You can set the line delimiter handling to DEFAULT, NONE or FORCE_NONE for files in a project area or on a server. The DEFAULT value provides the same behavior as previous releases for all checked-in or shared files. NONE keeps the line endings defined in the file. The server setting affects all files that are checked in or shared on the server. The project area setting affects all components that the project area owns. The project area setting overrides the server setting, except when the server setting is FORCE_NONE.

About this task

By default, when you share a project or check in a new file, Engineering Workflow Management source control examines the content and sets the line delimiter property of the file to the value PLATFORM. If the file is a binary file or has an inconsistent set of line delimiters, its line delimiter property is set to NONE (binary). When you load a file with a platform line delimiter property into a sandbox, Engineering Workflow Management source control determines the MIME content type of the file and sets the line delimiter to match the platform convention for that content type.

Procedure

  1. To set the line delimiter handling for a server:
    1. In the web client, navigate to the application administration page, for example, https://hostname.example.com:9443/ccm/admin.
    2. In the left pane, click Advanced Properties.
    3. On the Advanced Properties page, search for Server Default for Line Delimiter Handling. In the Server Default for Line Delimiter Handling field, set the value to DEFAULT, NONE or FORCE_NONE.
    4. In the upper-right corner, click Save.
  2. To set the line delimiter handling for a project area:
    1. In the Eclipse client, open the project and click the Process Configuration tab.
    2. On the Process Configuration page, in the Configuration pane, navigate to Project Configuration > Configuration Data > Source Control.
    3. Click Project Area Line Delimiter Handling.
    4. On the Project Area Line Delimiter Handling page, between the configuration-data tags, add the following code (The NONE value is used as an example; specify the value that you want.): <projectLineDelimiterHandling projectLineDelimiterHandlingValue="NONE"></projectLineDelimiterHandling>
    5. In the lower-right corner, click Commit.
    6. In the upper-right corner, click Save.
