Problem:

The modified by and time/date stamp are not correct after VCM session.

Resolution:

  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2006, 2006 R2, 2008
  • Product Component: View Compare Merge
  • Platform/OS Version: All Windows platforms

Description:
When I do a merge and go into the target view, some of the merges created a new version that has my name and time of merge as the last modified time/date. Why does it do that?


Answer/Solution:

With newer versions of the VCM, the merged file is actually checked into the project using the current user"s credentials. So whoever is using the VCM and performing the merge will be listed as the person who last modified the file regardless of who actually owned the original files used in the merge operation. Also, the modified time/date stamp of the merged file is generated at the time of the save, and does not correspond to any date/time stamps from the original files.
