ClearCase Support: Finding Old Views


I was recently asked a question on how to determine when a ClearCase View was created and last used. This is easy to do with this command:


cleartool lsview -pro VIEW_NAME

For example:

 $ cleartool lsview -pro VIEW_NAME
   VIEW_NAME               VIEW_STORAGE_DIRECTORY
 Created 23-Jun-07.11:10:11 by USERID.GROUP@MACHINE
 Last modified 04-May-08.14:57:04 by USERID.GROUP@MACHINE
 Last accessed 04-May-08.17:57:34 by USERID.GROUP@MACHINE
 Owner: SITE/USERID      : rwx (all)
 Group: SITE/GROUP       : r-x (read)
 Other:                  : r-x (read)
 Additional groups: SITE1.GROUP1 SITE2.GROUP2
 

I recommend that you automate the checking of all ClearCase Views with this script.
