ccollab addchangelist (for ClearCase)

Applies to Collaborator 14.6, last modified on July 10, 2024


The ccollab addchangelist command attaches all files from a submitted ClearCase changelist (activity) to a review on the Collaborator server.

Command Line Syntax

ccollab [global-options] addchangelist <review> <changelist> [<changelist> ...] --exclude <file-mask list> --include <file-mask list>

Command Options






A number of global or ClearCase-specific global options. See Command-line Global Options Reference.



Identifier of the desired review (an integer number), or a new, ask, or last keyword. Where keywords define the following behaviour:

  • new - the command will create a new review,
  • ask - the command will pause execution and prompt for the identifier of the desired review,
  • last - the command will use the last review that was created on the current machine via Command-Line Client (that is, it does not know about reviews created elsewhere).

<changelist> [<changelist> ...]


Identifier(s) or names of the desired activity(ies) in your source control.

--exclude <file-mask list>


Exclude files from changelist(s), that match specified mask(s), will be ignored (changelist command uploads to review only files that don’t match the masks).

When no files in changelist are matches to the mask(s) then whole changelist is uploaded ('exclude' option is ignored)

--include <file-mask list>


Includes only files that match specified mask(s) will be uploaded to review.

When no files in changelist are matches to the mask(s) then nothing is uploaded.



Set whether to skip changelist if it already exists in review.



Set whether empty changelist errors will be ignored when multiple changelists are uploaded. If all changelists are empty the command will throw an exception anyways.


To upload Activities add_new_scm_support and add_extended_version_parsing to a new review:

ccollab addchangelist new add_new_scm_support add_extended_version_parsing

To upload Activities AnActivity and AnotherActivity to review 111:

ccollab addchangelist 111 AnActivity AnotherActivity

To upload Activity AnActivity with all .java and .txt files except that started with 'test' to a new review
