Considerations for creating dynamic views

Create a dynamic view when:

  • You do not have enough disk space to store view-private files or view-private directories.
  • You start the view and mount VOBs on your computer.
  • For any element in a mounted VOB, the view is always to select the version specified by the config spec. You can navigate the view-extended namespace to see any version of any element in any mounted VOB.
  • It is acceptable that the checkout operation checks out the latest version on a branch, regardless of what the config spec specifies.
  • It is important that you can use the clearmake and omake features of build auditing and build avoidance.
  • The view objects need to be accessible to other team members through the VersionVault view-extended namespace.
