The Check-in Client should be used with either check-in, checkout or update commands. Here is the description about each of these commands:
A description about the command
Use this command to check out a registry path to the local file system or to a single dump file.
Use this command to check-in (commit) to the registry from a dump file or from the file system (an existing checkout or a new directory structure).
Use this command to update an already committed local file system.
This command is not available if you have checked out to a dump file, as it can be updated using the checkout command itself.
This command gives the status list of the added, updated and deleted files.
Command - sh checkin-client.sh status
Use this command to add new resources in the client side. This is reflected in the registry when committing. In earlier versions of check-in client, there were no option like this and whatever we put in the checked in location is committed. However, now the resource must be added to be reflected in the registry.
If you want to specify the media type when adding, you can use the following commands:
Though the media type is specified, it does not go through the registry handlers when committing to the registry.
Use this command to delete a resource which is checked in using checkin client. This is reflected in the registry when committing and the local resource is not deleted until then (this method is for the purpose of reverting). Earlier the resource can be deleted using OS delete but in the current version it does not delete the resource in the registry until the resource is deleted using the delete command.
Use this command to add or update a resource property. You can set any number of properties in one command as key value pairs.
Use this command to delete a resource property. You can delete any number of properties in one command giving key set.
