Creating a Snapshot Stream to Capture the Current State of Development

The team just wrapped up a release and wants to save the version of the files that comprised that release. In AccuRev, you accomplish this by creating a snapshot stream.

  1. Select the depot’s base stream.
  2. Click the New Snapshot button on the AccuRev toolbar.

    Alternative: Right-click and select New Snapshot from the context menu.

  3. Give the new snapshot a name (example: acme_1.0).
  4. Leave the Basis Time set to Now.
  5. Click Ok.

    The newly created snapshot stream appears in the StreamBrowser.
