Problem:

When attempting to commit a VCM session do I receive the error "The target folder is missing or cannot be resolved. The action "Share" cannot be applied. The Item Difference Folder "detail" - New in source - Share cannot be commited"?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2008 R2
  • Product Component: VCM
  • Platform/OS Version: All

If you get this error, Borland recommends upgrading to the latest release of StarTeam 2008 R2 CPC.

With this release, the VCM Action Decision Table has been updated so that VCM offers users better resolutions to the differences between items in compared and merged views.

This specific error has been resolved with the introduction of the Parent Folder Ignored row. This Difference Type defaults to Ignore which is also the only available action. It replaces former difference types New in source, parent folder deleted in target (Row 505) and New in source, parent folder deleted in target (Promote) (Row 515) which also defaulted to Ignore.

This difference type is applied dynamically. Whenever an item resides in a folder to which a VCM session has already assigned the merge action Ignore, then that item also ignored, but with difference type Parent Folder Ignored (Row 110). This allows you to commit the other resolved items.
