si updatearchive manipulates various member archive attributes.
This command affects the base archive, and, therefore, all projects and development paths referring to the archive.
This command takes the universal options available to all si commands, as well as some general options. See the options reference page for descriptions.
sets the archive description for a member. description is stored in the member's meta data as an archive description. If description has spaces then it must be enclosed by quotes.
converts a text type archive to a binary type archive.
You must have the changeArchiveType permission to use this option. You can only perform this conversion on a database type repository.
Once you have converted an archive to binary format, you cannot convert it back to text format.
sets the default branch Windchill RV&S uses to check in files. If unspecified, files are checked in to the trunk.
identifies what type of format to use in the archive. This is recommended for use by the system ADMIN only. delta is the traditional Windchill RV&S reverse delta format, while reference means to store member history by reference -- each revision is stored as a separate file. This feature can enhance performance for text file archives, and the option can be used for archives stored in either a file system or database repository.
controls whether an exclusive locks policy is in effect for the archive. With an exclusive locks policy, you must have an exclusive lock before checking in any changes.
identifies a specific member; use spaces to specify more than one member.
See the diagnostics reference page for possible exit status values.
Using si setprefs or si viewprefs, you are able to set or view the preference keys for this command.
