Stores Versions of parts of a Repository for Comparison and Rollback
Version Control provides a mechanism to store previous versions of any section of a model and later compare them to a current state. Version Control is a useful team feature that allows models to be developed in a coordinated way within a team environment. Sections of the model can be placed under Version Control and you can manage changes to and revisions of your model content by placing individual model Packages, view nodes or root nodes under Version Control. The information stored within the repository is a valuable corporate asset and needs to be managed as such.

Version Control provides a safeguard against losing previous model changes. In this topic you as the Librarian will learn how to configure a Version Control product for use within Enterprise Architect and to apply the configuration to control Packages, individually or in groups. You will also learn how to use Version Control to Check-Out and Check-In Packages, how to view previous versions, and compare a current version to a previous version.
