Ability to block creation of design baselines Hot

by Mikael Nyborg on March 28, 2017

We had a user accidentally creating a SRC baseline as a design baseline. As I understand it, such a baseline can contain more than one revision of a file, which I don't see as useful in any way, it is just confusing and a risk that users create such baselines by mistake.

  • In this case, this was discovered when the manager tried to create a merged baseline including the SRC baseline. The merge BL creation failed since the SRC baseline was not a "release baseline". It was however hard to see that the BL was of incorrect type, since the properties stated "release_baseline" as Life-cycle, but Type as "Design" (not Release). To confuse even more, there is a "Type name" attribute. Actually, I don't manage to find how a design baseline is created in the Desktop Client.

    We would like to have the possibility to block the creation of design baselines from the admin console?

  • This would be quite simple to achieve through an Event Trigger on the VALIDATE CREATE BASELINE event.

    We would also like to block creation of baselines scoped by $Generic:Global project
