To exclude elements from loading into a snapshot view

About this task


  1. Open the config spec of the view for editing by doing the following:
    1. Open a shell and change to a directory in the view.
    2. Enter this command:

      cleartool edcs

  2. In the text editor, create an element rule that specifies the initial version of the element you want to exclude by using the following syntax:
    element vob-tag/element-path /main/0

    For example, the element rule element /guivob/prog /main/0 loads the empty version of the /prog directory, preventing any of its child elements from loading.

  3. Save the config spec and exit the text editor.
  4. In your shell, answer Yes at the prompt to set the config spec.
