Is there a version control tool that can be recommended for HCI

Hi Everyone-

I am new to SAP, and having been involved in other integration projects with other tools, we always had a version control tool that helped us maintain and manage code. We are starting to develop using HCI, but there is no centralized code repository for version control and I am having a hard time locating one, is there one that can be recommended?

    Hello Donny,

    You can user option of save as version in WEBUI apart from this you can use git to control the version in eclipse tooling ( unfortunately Eclipse Tooling support for SAP CPI-PI going to be discontinued soon).

    Versioning with SAP CPI Iflow:

    Step 1 & Step 2:

    Once you are done with editing click on save as version and provide the version.Save and deploy to proceed further.

    Step 3:

    Once you are done with all your changes come back integration project view and follow below steps to see the version history.

    1) click on version no[ in Example 1.0.1 ]

    2) Popup will appear showing list of versions available with short description and who changed it last.

    3) Click on Timer like button to revert back to the older version or version whichever you want to make active.

    Link to EGit with SAP CPI blog:

    Hope this is helpful..!

    Thanks Praveen and Sriprasad

    I think I might have to just use GIT for the time being and hope the support for SAP CPI-PI doesn't go away too soon


    thanks,

    Donny
