Current User, Depot, and Workspace

With few exceptions, you must be logged in (see The Login Command) as a particular AccuRev user in order to execute AccuRev commands. An indicator in the lower left corner of the GUI window shows the current user (the one who is currently logged in).

Typically, the AccuRev repository is organized into multiple depots. For example, there might be separate depots for the development, testing, and documentation groups. Most GUI tabs display the data from one particular depot. When you're using a particular tab, the associated depot is termed the current depot. Its name is displayed at the bottom of the GUI window.

Many tabs have a current workspace context: the workspace that is the source of (or the possible destination of) the data that the tab displays. The name of the current workspace is displayed at the bottom of the GUI window, along with the pathname of its workspace tree.
