Check Out dialog box

If you use ClearCase® for source control management, you can use the Check Out dialog box to check out a script before you modify it.

You can check out an entire project or one or more files at a time. Use the Check Out dialog box to check out a file to modify it.

Selected Elements
Lists the scripts, files, object maps, class files, or projects that you select from the Projects view.
Check Out
Select to check out an element. Clear the Check Out check box if you do not want to check out an element. If unavailable, a gray box appears instead of a check box, and you cannot check out this element.
File, Script, Element, or Project Name
Displays the name of the element, project, script, or file name. If an element is in a folder, the folder appears as <foldername>.<filename>. For example, Myfolder.myfile.
Project Name
Displays the name of the project.
Details of <selected element>
Lists the state, file name, and path for each supporting file of an element or the selected element under Selected Elements. HCL OneTest™ UI does not display the script details unless there is a problem checking in the files. If the script details are not visible, optionally, set the Functional Test ClearCase Preferences to display the script details.
State
Displays the state of each supporting file.
File, Script, Element, or Project Name
Displays the name of the element, project, script, or file name. If an element is in a folder, the folder appears as <foldername>.<filename>. For example, Myfolder.myfile.
Path
Displays the location of each supporting file in a Functional Test project.
Some of the files in selection have been hijacked
Appears if you modify an element without checking it out. ClearCase hijacks this element. The hijacked file appears under Details of <scriptname> with a warning symbol (warning symbol) next to the file. Unavailable if an element is not hijacked.
Convert hijacked files to checkout
Appears if you modify an element without checking it out. Click to check out the hijacked version of the file. When you check in the file, the hijacked version replaces the version in the VOB.
Replace hijacked files (save each hijacked file to a file with a _keep extension)
Appears if you modify an element without checking it out. Click to check out the version of the file in the VOB. When you check in the file, ClearCase checks in the version in the VOB and creates a copy of the hijacked file with a _keep extension in case you need the changes later.
Request Mastership
Displays in a ClearCase multisite situation, when one or more of the files in the selected scripts, shared maps, or Java™ files is not mastered locally. Click to request mastership for the file. For more information, see About Requesting Mastership.
Reserved
Click to reserve a checkout. A reserved checkout gives you the exclusive right to check in the element when you are done. Clear to check out an element unreserved. With an unreserved checkout, you might need to merge your changes at checkin time, if someone else checked in the same element before you did.
Finish
Applies the settings in the Check Out dialog box to a single element or to multiple elements.

To open: In the HCL OneTest™ UI Project view, right-click one or more elements, and then click Team > Check Out.
