ClearCase Update Snapshot View Action

   

 

Use this action to update a ClearCase LT Snapshot View (this action is not necessary when using ClearCase with MVFS.)

 

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

 

 

clearcase_update

 

The snapshot view to update can be either the default view (specified on the Options panel) or a view specific to that action.

 

Handling Hijacked Files

 

Hijacked files can either be overwritten with the copy from the VOB, left alone, or backed up (to filename.keep.) See the manual page for complete details.

 

 

Updating File Time Stamps

 

Updated files can be updated to local system time, or kept with the timestamp from the VOB.

 

 

Update Options

 

Update can also be used to just log the differences between the VOB and the current view directory.
