How to set up multibranch Base ClearCase?

Hello.

Could someone please explain how TC can be set to work on a specific VCS Root branch in ClearCase (Base) using dynamic views?
How does one 'tune' into the correct branch?
Will TC automtically figure it out from the config-spec?
Should the Checkout Dir be unique for each buil project and its branch?

The Documentation is a bit vague on this.

Cheers

Hello,

TC loads files from the ClearCase view according to its config spec and checkout rules, so you can configure config spec to load specific branch and TC will figure it.

Great!

What about the checkout directory?
I have specified a checkout dir on local disk.
Should it be the same for each build config or a separate dir for each build config (each working on different ClearCase branches)

Also just to clarify.

When you say 'so you can configure config spec to load specific branch' ...
do you then mean that I must specify an explicit load command as for a snapshot view even though I'm using dynamic views or
does TC figure it out from the normal config-spec rules?

If the load command is needed, please provide some descriptions as to where it should point.

I can now answer my own question :-)

No load commands necessary in the config spec and yes, the correct branches seems to be watched på TC.
This looks very promising.

I also have a seperate checkout directory for each build configuration. Seems to work OK.

Cheers
