Include Other Users' Packages

Other users might be developing Packages in their own models that you could use in your model, or you might have other models containing Packages that you want to use in the current model. Unless you are sharing an SQL database or project file, those Packages are not automatically available to you. However, if the Packages have been placed into Version Control, you can import them into your model as children of one of your model's Packages.


Context Menu

Right-click on Package > Package Control > Get Package

Import Packages from Version Control into current model

On the 'Get Shared File' dialog, click on the drop-down arrow of the 'Version Control Configuration' field and select the Version Control configuration associated with the Package to retrieve.

The file list is populated with the names of files available through that configuration, for retrieval and import into your model.


Click on the Package file to import into your model and click on the OK button.

The Package file is imported as a new child Package, under the parent Package you selected.


  • You must have access to the Package files through the Version Control system and you must define a Version Control configuration through which to access those files
  • The Version Control configuration must use the same unique ID that was originally used to add the Package to Version Control
  • XMI Package files associated with Packages that are already part of your project, are NOT included in the list of files available for import
