    I have two different version control applications on my computer; SourceTree (for Git) and ClearCase (not in use by myself, but company mandated software on the computer).

    TWS only seems to see ClearCase and whenever I connect to Source Control, it's trying to connect and push into ClearCase. I'm not finding any obvious settings where I can pick which Source Control manager to use? Is there a way to ensure it always uses SourceTree, or am I just missing something really obvious?


    Thanks!

      Hi sandvinesteve,

      Thank you for letting us know about this.

      Right now The Welkin Suite does not work or interact with any 3rd-party source control management application on your PC - we are using Git management libraries which are bundled together with The Welkin Suite. From the other side, we are also not interacting with 3rd-party applications in terms of "detecting" projects in the repositories for the "Version Control" panel.

      Can you please answer some questions to clarify the details of the issue:

      1. What do you mean by TWS only seeing ClearCase when connecting to Source Control? Can you please describe the steps that you are doing and what exactly is a result of these steps?
      2. In what way would you like TWS to use source control managers?

      Your answers will help us to understand the details of the issue, so we will be able to resolve it as soon as possible.

       

      Thank you,

      Vladimir

        Hi Vladimir,

        I've managed to make a little more progress on this late yesterday.

        When I make the Welkin project within the same folder as the Git application uses (SourceTree in my case), then Welkin is aware of Git and all the details needed. This was a possible oversight on my part, as I had my Welkin project folder set to a different location as the SourceTree folder, and the documentation wasn't clear to me that both applications need to use the same folder.

        That being said, for any projects I made outside of the Git folder, Welkin seems to default to trying to use the ClearCase source control that's installed on my computer (which is what was originally throwing me off). I've never used ClearCase before (it isn't Git or SVN based), so somehow those two applications are interacting when projects are in non-Git folders.

        So I would say the main problem here is resolved; it was a mix of user error and slightly unclear documentation (at least for us Git newbies wink)

          Hi sandvinesteve,

          Thank you for sharing some more additional details about your case.

          In general, TWS operates with ".git" folder which represents all the details about the git repository. ".git" folder should be either in the solution or in the project folder for The Welkin Suite to detect and work properly with the projects in git. In this case, TWS will detect all repository and will allow you to work with the "Version Control" panel.

          In all other cases if ".git" folder is not present in the solution or project folder TWS does not look for it in any additional places and does not interact with 3rd-party applications in order to get details/perform any actions/work with the projects stored in git repositories.

          If TWS in your case interacts with any 3rd-party applications (ClearCase) please let us know what exactly interactions are happening and we will investigate this situation.


          Thank you,

          Vladimir

            Vladimir,

            I am confused about the steps required to set up a TWS project/solution so that it connects to a github repository. I have a github account. I have TWS installed. I work on my company's production org and on about a dozen sandboxes. Ideally, there would be one github repository. The production code would be in the 'master', and each sandbox would have its own branch. What is the step-by-step for setting this up? 

            Thank you.

              Hi Keith,


              Thank you for your question!

              I'd be happy to share some ideas (from our point of view) how to do this best - I'll get back to you with some ideas and steps early next week if this is ok with you.


              Thank you,
