Canceling a hijack

Cancel a hijack if it was not needed or to discard your changes.


To cancel a hijack on one or more files:
  1. Select the hijacked files of interest.
    Use the VersionVault Details view, VersionVault Search Results view, or the VersionVault Version Tree view. If you are working in the Eclipse environment, use any Eclipse view that supports the Team context menu.
  2. To open the Undo Hijack dialog box, click the undo hijack icon icon on the VersionVault toolbar, or take either of the following actions:
    • Select Undo Hijack from the context menu in the VersionVault Details view or VersionVault Search Results view.
    • In the Eclipse environment, select Undo Hijack from the Team context menu.
    • In the VersionVault Version Tree view, right-click the hijacked version and click Undo Hijack.
  3. Select Keep a copy modified artifacts to preserve a view-private copy of the file.
  4. Click OK.


The selected versions are loaded from the VOB as checked-in (read-only) files. If you selected Save a copy of the file with a '.keep' extension, the contents of the hijacked files are preserved as view-private files with names of the form filename.keep.
