Subversion Alias

Postby Valgardur » Fri 13 Sep 2013 14:59

How do I set up a subversion connection alias? I always get "SVN Binary path not specified".. and if I try to browse I cannot point to my subversion server. I use Tortoise as a client, do I need another client?

In the 'Version Control Alias Properties' window, please specify the following:

- select SVN in the 'Version Control Type' dropdown menu
- click 'SVN Binary Path...' and enter the path to the command line file svn.exe which is by default as follows:

C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\svn.exe

In case svn.exe doesn't exists, install SVN once again, select 'Modify' and install Command line client tools.

Thanks for a quick reply, one step in the right direction.

I would like to suggest a more thorough documentation, for example to mention that the command line tool is needed.

And what to do next. Now I can define the alias but I have no idea what to do next. I have a valid subversion repository and local copies as well.. but all buttons are gray.. "add file", "remove file", .. "check in", "check out"..

And the help button isn't much of

PS (no I am not new to version control or subversion)

You can use Version Control Alias to store schema snapshots (select 'Version Control' in the 'Options' section of the 'Create Schema Snapshot' window) and further use the saved in the repository snapshots in the Schema Compare feature.

The "add file", "remove file", .. "check in", "check out".. buttons will become available as soon as you add snapshots to the repository.

So I cannot simply use this to open files from SubVersion, check out, check in..?

Please note that SVN is supported in dbForge on the level of snapshot files only. So, if you want to work with other types of files, you should use another SVN clients.

My point being that it is not very useful to work only on snapshot level for the whole database, at least, working with selected objects would make it far more useful.

Please add this as a suggestion for future releases..
