Pins or unpins the current or history version of a file.

You must have Pin access right to use this command.

A file that has been pinned is denoted with a pin symbol. When you pin a file, you are locking in a particular version of the file. In other words, no changes can be made to the file as long as it is pinned. Thus, when a Get operation is performed on a pinned file, the pinned version is the version that will be retrieved, even if there is a more recent version.

Note: Project can not be pinned.
