  • JDK/Compiler Version: All

Question:

How are Shared File Links handled when a Branching View is created?


Answer:

When creating a branching view, links of share files are not preserved in the child views.

The links for share files are only preserved if:

* - the files are not set to branch,

* - the files are not set to a point in time (i.e. the "as of" option),

With the above settings, the share will work because a change in one child view will then apply to its parent view. These changes in turn will propagate to other children of the parent sharing this file.

The workaround is to re-share all the files through a manual process.
