Project Upgrade Query

Jump to solution

We have an ALM 12.21 project which has versioning enabled and we are trying to migrate it to an ALM 15 environment and upgrade it. We have copied the db schema and restored on the ALM 15 DB server. Now we must ensure there are no checked out entities.

There are hundreds of items checked out. It will be very hard for us to manually ensure these are all checked in.

Is there any method whereby we could blanket apply an und-checkout across all items? In the VC_TEST table I see there is a column called TC_VC_STATUS which shows all of the different items with 'Checked_Out' status.

 

The trouble for us is that there are so many. It would take a very long time to go into ALM Desktop Client and manually undo each and every check out.

 

Surely there is a quicker method?

There are two option that will help to reduce your effort. 

However, these activities should be done before coping/dumping project schema to target DB.

Excellent. Thank you very much. That worked for us & saved us a lot of time.

 

I have another upgrade query for another project. I will put that in a new thread to avoid any confusion.

 

Thanks again.
