How to lock an entire stream in Rational Team Concert

Technote (FAQ)


How can you lock an entire stream in IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC), so that no changes can be made to any of the artifacts in this stream?


There are situations when you want to prevent any further changes to the artifacts within a stream.


Move the stream to a team area where no one has delivery permission by setting the Owned By field to this team. Nobody will then have rights to make changes.

To unlock the stream:

  • Move it back to the original team area

  • Set the suitable permissions to the current team area
