VC Time-Out Value

Specify the amount of time that Enterprise Architect waits for a TFS command to complete; if the command does not complete within the allowed time, Enterprise Architect displays a Time-out error message, detailing the command that failed to complete

This single time-out value is applied to all Version Control Configurations (of types SVN, TFS and CVS) that the user accesses from this workstation

 

Notes:

  • If you automatically log in to TFS through means external to Enterprise Architect (for example, through MS Integrated Security), you can leave the User Name and Password fields blank
  • If the Password field is blank, Enterprise Architect retrieves the your Windows username and uses that value when determining whether a package file is checked out to you or to another user
  • TFS version control can also be accessed using the TFS MSSCCI client; to make use of the TFS MSSCCI client, please define an SCC based Version Control Configuration
