Managing Baselines

Check In Branch

For the selected branch of the model, (that is, the selected package and all of its child packages) display the Select Packages to Check In dialog, listing all version controlled packages within that branch that are checked out to you.

You can then select packages in the displayed list, to be submitted for check-in.



Check in a Model Branch

Check Out Branch

For the selected package, check out the package and recursively check out all of its contained sub-packages.

Enterprise Architect retrieves the latest version of the packages from the central repository, overwriting the current packages.

After check out, the packages are available for editing.
