Automatically generate a baseline

Jama automatically creates a baseline when you create a review. Baselines like these give people a way to compare reviewed items before and after the review. This is especially helpful when there are multiple revisions to a review.


Review-generated baselines are located under the Baseline tab of the project where the items reside. Each review baseline will display with the prefix "Review" and the name of the review added.

The items' versions within a baseline cannot be changed once created. Users can edit the baseline name and description, view the contained items, compare their versions and approve a baseline with a digital signature. Users must have Manage project permissions to edit a baseline.
