How to enable 3rd party Version control tool

(Doc ID 825647.1)

Last updated on JULY 12, 2016

Applies to:

Siebel Tools - Version 7.8.2.5 SIA [19227] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Customer is trying to enable integration of repository check in/check out mechanism in Siebel Tools with a third-party source code-control system called MS Team Foundation Server.

When reading the Bookshelf > Using Siebel Tools 7.8 rev B guide, page 54, it states "each time a project is checked into the server repository, an archive file containing all the objects in the project is also checked into the source control system".

In the Configuring the srcctrl.bat section on page 55, it states the below command line needs to be completed:

SRCCTRL action dir comment_file project_file

Custome is unclear about the information in Bookshelf and has the following questions.
- What will trigger the execution of the SRCCTRL.bat file?
- Is it automatically executed when a user checked-in a project in Tools?
- What about during a check-out operation?
- Is there integration between Siebel Tools and the Source control software to allow Siebel tools to check out the older version of files from source control software to restore back to the old configuration?
