When viewing revision histories of project items, filtering can be used to help
narrow your search.
To access revision history, you must be a member
of a group other than guest for the
repository in which the project item is stored. In addition, you must be granted access to
the desired projects and project items.
Each revision history record of a project item includes its timestamp, assigned
version, project name, item type, item name, user who checked in the item, and
check-in comments. If you only select a specific project item, filtering might not
very useful. However, if you were to invoke revision history from the level of a
repository or a project node, the revision table would display all available project
items with their various fields. You might then find it hard to search for what you
need. That's where filtering would come in handy.
To view filtered revisions:
In the TestArchitect explorer tree, right-click a repository
node, a project node, or a specific item node, and then click
For example: right-click the SampleRepository node
and click Revision History.
In the Revision History dialog box, you can reduce the

- Timestamp: Clicking the arrow button displays the
filter bar. You can select either a range of dates, or the most recent
day(s) (up to seven).
- Assigned Version: The associated linked
- Project: The project name
- Type: Clicking the arrow button displays the
filter bar. You can filter based on specific type of the project item.
- Name: The name of the project item.
- Updated By: User who checked the revision
- Comments: Included check-in comment.
For all fields except for Timestamp, a revision record's
field is considered to match the corresponding filter criterion when it contains the
specified filter text as a substring. Hence, in the above example, filter text of
"avail" in the Name field would filter out all but the
7th (get available cars) and 8th (check available
