Defining an Integration Baseline (Windows and Linux and UNIX)

To complete the set-up of a UCM project environment, you need to define an integration to allow the developers to join the UCM project you created and start working.

You define the integration baseline using the Project Explorer.

This final task also sets the foundation for completing the exercises of the module Joining a UCM project.

Try it!

  1. If you need to start the Project Explorer again, do so by clicking Start > Programs > HCL VersionVault > Project Explorer.
  2. In the Project Explorer, select the integration stream denali_release_integration.
  3. Right-click and select Make Baseline from the shortcut menu to open the Make Baseline dialog box.
  4. Make the following selections in the Make Baseline dialog box:
    1. Accept the default base name (in Linux and UNIX: Baseline title); it should be similar to this: denali_release_12_10_2002.
    2. Add an optional comment: initial integration baseline.
    3. Make sure incremental is selected as the type of baseline. An incremental baseline is a baseline that HCL VersionVault creates by recording the last full baseline and those versions that have changed since the last full baseline was created.

      A full baseline is a baseline that HCL VersionVault creates by recording all versions below the component's root directory.

    4. Verify that the project stream lists: denali_release/denali_release_Integration.
    5. Verify that the view context lists the following:

      On Windows: your-username_denali_release_int

      On Linux and UNIX: your-username_denali_release_integration

    6. Click OK.
    7. HCL VersionVault reports that one new baseline was created. Click OK (on Linux and UNIX: Dismiss) to close the message box.
    8. Click Close. (Windows only.)

Where Am I?

You have completed all the tasks required for setting up a UCM project environment. UCM developers can now join the UCM project.
