Version Control Setup

Once you or an Administrator have installed and configured the version control product software, to start using version control you must first define a version control configuration within your project in Enterprise Architect, to be used to control the Packages in the project. You can define any number of version control configurations in a single model, but any given Package is associated with only one configuration.

Notes

  • Version control configuration details are stored in the user's Windows Registry settings, but each project stores a list of the configurations it uses, so that version control connections can be initialized as the project is being loaded
  • If you are using the Corporate or extended editions of Enterprise Architect with security enabled, the administrator must also set up access permissions to configure and use version control
