Switch branch

Application developers can switch to a different repository branch to work on another version of the application.

Before you begin

  • Role required: admin or source_control
  • GIT repository with one or more available branches.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Source Control > Switch Branch.
    The system displays the Switch Branch window.
  2. If there any local changes on the instance, you can save or discard them.
    OptionDescription
    Save local changes Saves local changes before switching to an alternate branch. You can later merge or discard the saved changes.
    Discard local changes Permanently deletes all local changes before switching to an alternate branch.
    Note: Use caution when discarding local changes. Since all application developers share repository credentials, there is no way to discard just one set of user changes. Note you cannot later restore discarded changes.
  3. Select the branch you want to switch to.
  4. Click Switch Branch.
    Studio updates the local application to match the branch version from repository.
