A baselineincludes all artifacts, all folder trees,and the public tag list.You can create a baseline to capturethe project and the included artifactsat a specific point in the project.Baselines can represent the state of aproject at a particular projectmilestone, or represent the lastknown-stable version of artifacts. Forexample, you might create a baselineafter you complete a review ofartifacts or at the end of an iteration.Baselines can then provide a basisfrom which to identify and assesschanges to artifacts in the project.You can create a collection from aproject baseline.You must have Project BaselineAdministrator permission to createbaselines. By default, the ProjectBaseline Administrator role has thispermission, but the Administrator andAuthor role do not.When you work with project baseline,note these conditions:• You cannot modify a projectbaseline artifact.• You can create an unlimitednumber of project baselines.

Type a name and description,and then click OK.Project baselines are listed in the Baselinessection of the right sidebar. To open a projectbaseline, open the Artifacts sidebar, and thenclick the link for the baseline.

A revision node is created only whena specific artifact is saved. Baseline nodes aredisplayed whenever a project baseline iscreated. Consequently, a baseline node doesnot create a revision, but uses the revisionthat existed when the baseline was created.
