Read-only streams

During the evolution of a project, you might need to provide some users with access to baselines while ensuring that they do not make any changes to components. You can address this requirement by creating a Read-Only development stream for those users. You cannot make baselines in Read-Only streams, nor can you create child streams beneath them. You can create view-private files, such as derived objects in Read-Only streams.

Common use cases for Read-Only streams include the following:
  • Your quality engineering team needs to build and test a particular configuration.
  • Your customer support team needs access to a library that was built in a previous release.
  • Your release engineering team needs to create a release based on a combination of old and new baselines.
