Work with Version-Controlled Scripts in ALM Projects

Relevant for: Scripts in ALM projects that support version control AND have the Performance Center addition installed.

If these two conditions are not met, see Work with Scripts in ALM Projects.

The following steps describe how to work with scripts saved in ALM projects for which version control is enabled.

  1. Connect to ALM.

    Open a connection to the ALM server and project that contains the script. For task details, see Connect to ALM.

  2. Open the script.

    Select File > Open > Script/Solution. In the Open VuGen Script or Solution dialog box, select the script to open and then click Open.

  3. Check in/out the script.

    If the ALM project has version control, each script is always defined as being either checked-in or checked-out. For more details, see ALM Version Control - Overview. To check in and check out scripts, select Version Control > ALM > Check In/Check Out.

    Note: If the ALM project has version control, the file is locked when it is checked out.

    If the ALM project is not version controlled, the file is not locked when checked out of the project.

  4. Cancel a check out. (Optional)

    If you checked out a script and do not want to save the changes, you can return the status of the script to checked-in without saving by selecting Version Control > ALM > Undo Check Out.

  5. Save the script.

    Select File > Save Script. If the script is in a project that uses version control and is not checked out, the script is saved as a temporary file on your local machine.
