Using Version Control like GIT with SDK

Dear experts,

Have you used, or heard of the usage of a version control system for solutions built on the cloud application studio (SDK)? For UI components in UI Designer, there is a basic built-in versioning, and considering that these are not expected to be modified too often, this is ok. However, for ABSL and BODL files, it would be nice to have them in a GIT repository (or something equivalent).

I am looking for advice about how to integrate the code with a VCS.

EDIT: I am already aware of the 'Version History' under Implementation Manager. However, this only shows the versions at the solution level: not an adequate solution for our requirement.
EDIT2: I have submitted the idea here: https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/idea/207809
Please endorse if you want this too.

Thanks and regards,
Rohan

    Rohan,

    Hah, I wish. We resorted to manually copying code into .txt files and sticking them on SharePoint. As far as I'm aware there's no such integrated version control (or even an ability to get code out of the SDK without manually copying it), which is a complete pain.

    • Just as I thought, Lewis. For large customizing projects, with many BOs and corresponding ABSL scripts, having a versioned repository becomes compulsory. I will post here if we come up with a brainwave.
