Resynchronize the Status of Version Controlled Packages

Enterprise Architect enables you to re-synchronize the version control status of version controlled packages within your project with the status reported by your version control provider.  This can be useful if you are creating copies of your Enterprise Architect project, where checking in a package from one copy of the model leaves the package in the second copy of the model with an out of date version control status.

For a given package, the re-synchronization process queries the corresponding version control provider to find the status of the package file associated with the version-controlled package.  If necessary, the process then updates the package flags within the model database, to synchronize the package status recorded in the model with the value reported by the version control provider.

Use to

Update the version control status of packages in your model, to align it with the status reported by their associated Version Control Configuration

How to



See also


You can resynchronize either a single version controlled package or all version controlled packages within your project.


Right-click the package in the Project Browser and select the Package Control | Re-synch Status With VC Provider context menu option, or
Select the Project | Version Control | Re-synch Statuses of All Packages option


The results of the re-synchronization process are sent to the Enterprise Architect Output window.




Double-click on any result message to select, in the Project Browser, the corresponding package.




This process does not cause any package data to be either exported from your model to the associated package file, or imported from a package file into your model's package data
If a package has been checked-out and modified with Enterprise Architect, but your version control provider reports the package file as checked-in, running this process marks the package within Enterprise Architect as being checked-in, without exporting and committing the pending changes; subsequently checking-out the package imports the latest revision of the package file from version control, effectively discarding the uncommitted modifications from the model
Similarly, if a package file is checked-out to you in your local working copy folder, but not in the Enterprise Architect model, running this process marks the package within the model as checked-out, but it does not import the associated package file from the version control system; consequently, it is possible to check-in a package from Enterprise Architect  that is potentially out of date, compared to the latest revision of the package file within the version control system
