Version Control Settings Dialog

The Version Control Settings dialog enables you to specify the information required to create a Version Control Configuration, which can then be used to establish a connection to a version control provider.

Enterprise Architect supports version control through MS Team Foundation Server, Subversion, CVS or any SCC-compliant version control product.

It is possible to use multiple version control configurations in the same Enterprise Architect model. It is also possible to use the same version control configuration across different models, to facilitate sharing 'standard' packages between those models, through the version control system.


In the Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, System Engineering and Ultimate editions of Enterprise Architect, if security is enabled you must have Configure Version Control permission to set up version control options for the current model.
