Techniques for isolating your work

Individual developers may need or prefer to isolate their work from the changes made by other team members. To do so, they can use these techniques to configure their views:
  • Time rules. When someone checks in an incompatible change, a developer can re-configure the view to select the versions at a point before those changes were made.
  • Private subbranches. A developer can create a private subbranch in one or more elements (for example, /main/major/anne_wk). The config spec must be changed to select versions on the /main/major/anne_wk branch instead of versions on the /main/major branch.
  • Viewing only their own revisions. Developers can use an HCL VersionVault query to configure a view that selects only their own revisions to the source tree.
