Creating config spec templates for remote users of ClearCase

Technote (troubleshooting)


This technote explains how you can share a common set of config specs and or load rules using mock view templates when creating IBM® Rational® ClearCase® web views for use with the ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC).

Resolving the problem

If you wish to keep remote users in sync with config spec or load rule usage, here is a simple method that can be deployed to achieve this goal.

1. Create a view in the users' region with a view name to represent the "template".

For example, Project_XYZ_View_Template

2. Modify the config spec of this view and add the desired load rules and or configuration specifications as comments.

Note: A comment in a config spec is denoted by the # character preceding the line.


#Default config spec

element * CHECKEDOUT
element * /main/LATEST

Review the ClearCase Command Reference Guide on the topic of config_spec (cleartool man config_spec) for more information.

3. When the CCRC client creates a view, they can copy a config spec from another view in the same region.


Click the drop down menu to select the "template" view (in this example it is CompTeamCCRC)

Click the View config spec... to view the comments.

In this example you can see the instructions for the remote users.

To complete the example, you would Copy the load rule (highlight the load rule, right click and select Copy)

When you arrive to the load rule section of the view creation process, you could paste your item(s) in the load rule section.
