ClearCase Make Label Type Action

   

Use this action to make a new label type in a VOB. The new label type can then be assigned to elements and components within that VOB.

 

For full details of the mklbtype command, see the ClearCase manual page (type cleartool man mklbtype.)

New Label Type Name

 

By convention, and to avoid conflict with branch names, ClearCase Label Type Names are normally given in all uppercase letters.

 

Click on the dropdown menu to see a list of all available VOBs.

The label can be scoped either for a single VOB (Ordinary) or for all client VOBS as well (Global.)

 

 

Usage Constraints

 

By default, and to avoid ambiguity, label types can be attached to only one version of a given element. This constraint can be relaxed to allow each branch to contain a labelled version.
