Baselines

A baseline in Jama Connect is a snapshot of your project at a point in time. The current version of selected items — and their relationships — are forever associated with that baseline. A baseline also captures the state of the selected items, like Draft, Reviewed, and Approved.

Important considerations

  • When you add a relationship to a baseline, the version doesn't change.

  • Relationships do not change if you replace it with a baseline.

    For example, if you have two relationships at the time of baseline version one, make a change to version two, add a relationship to version three and replace it with a baseline, you still have three relationships.

  • If you click Revert to Baseline, all content is switched back to the content that was versioned at the time it was baselined.

Why are baselines important?
