VCS Settings of the Administration Tool¶
The dialog “VCS Configuration” controls the VCS settings of the Administration Tool. To open it, open the Admin Tool preferences on the menu Tools and click the VCS tab.
We recommend configuring the Administration Tool to use an external diff viewer tool. This will make it easier two compare the content of conflicting elements when performing check-ins and check-outs.
To do this, enter the path to the diff viewer tool executable in the
Diff viewer path field. Usually, the default value of the
Arguments pattern box is correct:
This box defines how to launch the tool to compare the two files passed
as arguments. If you need to change the arguments, note that you have to
use the tokens
%remotepath as the paths to the
files that are going to be compared.
To enable “conflict detection” in Virtual DataPort, select Enable conflict detection. The sections Check In / Commit Operations and Check Out / Update Operations explain how enabling or disabling “conflict detection” affect the behavior of the check in and check out operations of Subversion and Microsoft TFS.
