StarTeam Action Server Tab

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This tab of the StarTeam action configures information about the server to use.


Host: The server to access (optional, blank for local computer).


Port: The port to connect on (required).


Username: The StarTeam username to login with (optional).  If empty, the current the username of the currently logged in Windows user will be used.


Password: Password of the StarTeam user (optional).


Pwd file: Filename containing the user's password (optional).  If specified, it overrides a password specified above.


Encrypt password file: Indicates that the password file is encrypted.


Project: The project name (required for most commands).


View: A view hierarchy (optional).  Use the colon (:) as a delimiter between view names. The view hierarchy should always include the root view. For example, "StarDraw:Release 4:Service Packs" indicates that the view to be used is the Service Packs view, which is a child of the Release 4 view and a grandchild of the StarDraw root view. If the view name is omitted, the root (default) view is used. If the view is the only view in that project with that name, you can use only the view name. (This is not recommended because another view with that name could be created at a later date and cause confusion.) The view name in the example is StarDraw. Because this is the root view of the StarDraw project, it could have been omitted.


Folder: A folder hierarchy to identify the folder. Use the forward slash (/) as a delimiter between folder names. The folder hierarchy never includes the root folder. Omit the folder hierarchy if the file is in the view’s root folder. For example, if the root folder of the view is StarDraw and the hierarchy to your files is "StarDraw/SourceCode/Client", use only "SourceCode/Client".


Compress data: Compresses all the data sent between the workstation and the server and decompresses it when it arrives. Without this option, no compression takes place.


Encryption: Encrypts all the data sent between the workstation and the server and unencrypts it when it arrives. Without this option, no encryption takes place.

Encryption protects files and other project information from being read by unauthorized parties over unsecured network lines. The encryption types are ordered from fastest to slowest. Each of the slower encryption types is safer than the one preceding it.
