Audit a Dimensions CM project or stream

This topic describes how to produce an audit report for the build areas associated with a project/stream in the Dimensions CM desktop client.

The report compares the files in the Dimensions CM repository with those in the build areas that you select. You can also repair the build area so that it contains all the item revisions from the project/stream that are at the stage you selected.

PRIVILEGES: Audit a project/stream.

To audit a build project/stream:

  1. In the desktop client, open the project/stream to audit.

  2. In the toolbar, click Build and select Audit.

    Or from the project/stream menu, select Audit.

    The Audit Project dialog box opens.

  3. From the Stage list, select a stage to audit.

  4. From the Area list, select a build area to audit. To audit all the build areas associated with the stage, select <All areas>.

  5. From the Filter list, select a filter to determine which items to include in the audit. Or use the default filter for the selected area.

    Caution: Make sure not to confuse audit filters with area filters. For details on how to use these filters correctly, see the Administration Console online help.

  6. To repair the build area so that it contains all the item revisions from the project/stream that are at the specified stage, select the option Attempt to fix any inconsistencies found in the area.

  7. For Report File, enter the path to the file to contain the report, or click the browse button and select the file. If you do not select a file, the report is displayed in a new window and is not saved.

  8. To run the audit, click OK.
