  • 1.  hco command - download branches

    Posted Oct 02, 2017 03:07 PM

    Good afternoon


    I'm having a process in RA that uses the hco command to go to harvest and download a specific package from a specific state using the following command :


    hco -b harvestPeru -usr <user> -pw <password> -en "PROPUESTA" -st "Despliegue Desarrollo" -vp "\PROPUESTA_TDE"  -cp . -pf "<package_name>" -po -pn "Check out Lectura" -s *.* -br -r -o hco.log


    The thing is, it always downloads trunk versions : if i have a package with only branch versions, when I run the command to download the entire package, it ends up empty with a hco.log file saying there are no versions to download :




    Is there any way to download branch versions with the command? Maybe adding some other variable or parameter?

    Add -br for "branch only" or -tb for "trunk and branch".  "Trunk only" is the default (specified with -to).


    Edit: Correction -bo is "branch only"; you already have -br for "browse mode".


    Best regards,

    Actually the options are "-bo" for branch versions only, "-to" for trunk versions only, or "-tb" for trunk and branch versions.  I think "-to" is the default.  Here is where you can read more about these options:
