si demote demotes a project member to a lower state of development. For example,
si demote --state=Development c:/Documentation/Man_Pages/xml_man/si_add.1.xml
A state is a textual description defined by the administrator to classify the condition of a revision in a history. If no state is assigned to a revision at check-in, a default value of Exp (for Experimental) is used. See the Windchill RV&S Help Center for details on setting up states.
Project members can also be demoted to a predefined lower state of development using this command.
Demoting members is for historical purposes only. To more effectively control project workflow, PTC recommends using the Windchill RV&S integration.
This command takes the universal options available to all si commands, as well as some general options. See the options reference page for descriptions.
-s state
