SCC Settings

When you are setting up your version control configurations on the 'Version Control Settings' dialog, and you set the configuration type to 'SCC', the dialog presents a set of fields specific to SCC-based configurations. You can then define details such as:

  • The working copy folder to be used with the configuration
  • The details necessary to connect to the SCC version control system

You set the version-control configuration type to SCC for version control providers such as:

  • MS Visual Source Safe
  • Rational Clear Case
  • Perforce
  • AccuRev
  • Any other SCC-compatible clients

  • After you choose the appropriate folder path, the 'Select SCC Provider' dialog displays, listing all SCC providers that are installed on the current workstation; choose the SCC provider to use and click on the OK button
  • At this point, the SCC client opens its own dialog to prompt you for information; SCC products implement this functionality in  varied ways, but typically you are prompted to log in to the version control system, then prompted to choose the SCC project to use and possibly a (server) folder contained within that project
  • At the conclusion of this process, all of the SCC details should be filled in; you can then save the definition by clicking on the Save button on the 'Version Control Settings' dialog
