How file checkouts are canceled

When you cancel the checkout of a file element, the request is handled as follows:

  1. You are prompted to rename the file in your view to filename.keep.
  2. The VOB is notified that you no longer have the version checked out in your view.
  3. In a snapshot view, the version that was in your view when you performed the checkout operation is copied from the VOB.

    In a dynamic view, the version-selection rules in the config spec are used to select a version.
