Icons used in Rational Team Concert Source Control

The Eclipse client for RTC, RTC Client for Microsoft Visual Studio and the Web UI use specific icons to represent SCM artifacts. These base icons are enhanced with extra visuals relative to their status in certain views (e.g. the Team Artifacts view, Pending Changes view, Repository workspace editor, etc.). Here's a list of the basic icons and their variants used in the SCM. If you are not familiar with any of the terms used below, please try out Good practices and key workflows for Rational Team Concert Source Control users for appropriate references.

Snapshot


 Baseline




Component


  1. Component (if shown within a repository workspace, also indicate it is loaded or partially loaded in my sandbox)
  2. Component owned by a project area
  3. Component owned by me
  4. Component owned by a contributor who isn't me
  5. Component (if shown within a repository workspace, also indicate it is not loaded in my sandbox)
 



Change Set


  1. Change set (active i.e. not completed, not linked to any work item)

  4. Completed change set linked to one work item
  5. Completed change set linked to two or more work items
If you are puzzled by other SCM icons, please drop a comment below with a link to a screen capture (e.g. attach it to the work item 40464). Hope this reference will be helpful to you.

Note. For icons inside the Pending Changes view, explanations are also provided here.
