RE: Connect to GIT Repository using 3rd Party
Hi Hawk,

Unfortunately we don’t currently support connecting directly to the Team Server remote repositories using other Git tools.

However each project that you have downloaded within the studio will have its own local GIT repository which you can interrogate using any compatible Git tool. These repositories will be in the <WM install location>/users/user1/<workspace>/mvc/<project> folders.

You do need to be careful accessing the content in this way though, as any changes that you make could impact the correct working of the studio.

If possible, it would be useful for us to know what you are trying to achieve with this, so that we can consider ways to improve the Team Server offering in the future.

Regards,
Gerard

Trying to do file comparisons between versions. I believe this has been introduce in WM 9.5 but we are stuck in the upgrade cycle of Bizflow Corp which is still using WM8 for 12.6

Thanks for the additional information.

Yes, WebMaker 9 added the ability to see changes between project versions within the studio. Hopefully BizFlow will ship a newer WebMaker version for you soon.

In the meantime, you should be able to use any Git tool to inspect the repositories for each project to get some idea of the changes. Each version should be tagged in the Git repository, but you will need to try and interpret the underlying WebMaker metadata files.

Regards,
Gerard
