\section1 Checking out and Checking in
In addition to the standard version control system functions described in
\l {Using Common Functions}, you can check out and check in files.
To create a writable copy of a file, select \uicontrol Tools >
\uicontrol ClearCase > \uicontrol {Check Out}. If you check out files in a
Unified Change Management (UCM) view, they are added to the change set of
a UCM activity. By default, the activities are automatically assigned names.
To disable this functionality, select \uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol Options
> \uicontrol {Version Control} > \uicontrol ClearCase, and then deselect the
\uicontrol {Automatically assign activity names} check box.
To automatically check out files when you edit them, select \uicontrol Tools
> \uicontrol Options > \uicontrol {Version Control} > \uicontrol ClearCase,
and then select the \uicontrol {Automatically check out files on edit}
check box.
To cancel the checkout for a file and delete the checked-out version,
select \uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol ClearCase >
\uicontrol {Undo Check Out}.
To check in checked-out versions of files in the change set of the current
UCM activity, select \uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol ClearCase >
\uicontrol {Check In Activity}.
To create a permanent new version of the current file or all files in the
versioned object base (VOB), select \uicontrol Tools >
\uicontrol {ClearCase} > \uicontrol {Check In}. To be asked to confirm
that you want to check in the files, select \uicontrol Tools >
\uicontrol Options > \uicontrol {Version Control} > \uicontrol ClearCase,
and then select the \uicontrol {Prompt on check-in} check box.
By default, you are asked to enter a comment when checking files out or in.
To suppress this prompt, select \uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol Options >
\uicontrol {Version Control} > \uicontrol ClearCase, and then select the
\uicontrol {Do not prompt for comment during checkout or check-in} check
box.
If you change the read-only attribute of a file that is loaded into a
snapshot view and modify the file without checking it out, you \e hijack the
file. To revert a hijacked file to its checked in version, select
\uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol ClearCase > \uicontrol {Undo Hijack}.
By default, the files in the VOBs are indexed for quick access to their
statuses. To disable indexing, select \uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol Options
> \uicontrol {Version Control} > \uicontrol ClearCase, and then select the
\uicontrol {Disable indexer} check box. To only have some VOBs indexed,
specify them in the \uicontrol {Index only VOBs} field.
