Question: 

How do we resolve an "element not signed out" error when trying to Add an element back into CA Endevor SCM?

 

Answer: 

 

An Add that gets an "element not signed out" message indicates that the element was Retrieved without Signout.

To resolve the error condition, you can do one of two things:

  • OPTION 1:  Re-Retrieve the element and under ACTION OPTIONS: specify -

SIGNOUT ELEMENT  ===> Y (Y/N)

 

  • OPTION 2: Use the Signin action and under ACTION OPTIONS: specify -
SIGNOUT TO       ===> userid
