The lighter-shaded boxes representolder versions.If changes were made that you do not want toretain, you can restore an artifact to aprevious version .Note: When you delete an artifact, theartifact and its audit history are gone. Youcannot recover the artifact and its history.

By clicking this tab, you can see amore detailed history of changes that weremade to an artifact.

When artifacts that match theprofile criteria are changed, the linkedartifacts are marked with a suspicionindicator to alert team members of thepossible impact of the change.Administrators can create suspicion profilesthat correspond to different roles or areas ofinterest in a project.Suspect profiles can be used for projects,modules, and artifacts.To select a suspicion profile, click theSuspicion Profiles icon in the toolbar.When you open a saved view that includessuspicion profiles, your current suspicionprofile is set to the profile or profiles that arein the saved view.The suspicion profile selection is stored as acookie in your browser. The profile is activein all sessions with that browser, unless youclear the browser cookies.

You can view indicators in thesidebar of the artifact editor.You can also view indicators inthe Links section of the sidebar.For more information about suspecttraceability, see “Viewing andclearing suspect traceability” athttp://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v4r0/index.jsp(http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v4r0/topic/com.ibm.rational.rrm.help.doc/topics/t_view_suspect_trace.html?resultof=%22Viewing%2band%2bclearing%2bsuspect%22%20%22traceability%22%20%22traceabl%22)The Suspect icon shows the source ofthe change that caused the suspectstate:• If the icon shows a black arrowthat points out of the icon, thechange is in the current artifact.• If the icon shows a blue arrowthat points into the icon, thechange is in the linked artifact.• If the icon shows a red doublearrow, both the current artifactand the linked artifact werechanged.In the Links section, you can see bothincoming and outgoing suspect links.On the Artifacts page, you can seeonly incoming links.

You can go to that artifact and reviewits audit history to review the changes.To clear a suspect indicator, do one of thesesteps:•To remove the suspicion for all of theartifacts that are in the window, click Clearall.•To remove the suspicion for all of theartifacts that are in a profile group in thewindow, click Clear for profile. Thiswindow can contain multiple profile groups.•To remove the suspicion for an artifact thatis in the window, click Clear.
