Integrations between git and global configurations


Rakesh A (299) | asked Sep 13, 5:18 a.m.
Hello,
   I am currently using IBM 6.0.6.1 and soon moving to IBM ELM 7.X. Currently in 6.0.6.1 as I know  it's not possible to link Git / GitHub source code into a Global Configuration. And similarly its not possible to link IBM ELM artifacts in Git / GitHub.

Are there any such features being supported in IBM ELM 7.X on-wards or it's already in IBM roadmap to support this use-cases ?

You can find the New & Noteworthy tab on the download page for every version. Open https://jazz.net/downloads/elm/
Select the download for the version you are interested and click the New & Noteworthy tab.

E.g. https://jazz.net/downloads/elm/releases/7.0.2?p=news Then select the solution component e.g. Global Configuration Management and browse the information.

That is the easiest way of finding out what is going on.

Note, that the general policy is that one can not talk about futures, planned features etc. Roadmaps can also not be discussed here, as they are usually confidential.

Rakesh you could check with Persistent. They have a Unite adapter that works with some git variants.

This functionality is not supported in any of the 7.x releases that have been released, and is not in plan for 7.0.3, the next ELM release.

The git config command is a convenience function that is used to set Git configuration values on a global or local project level.These configuration levels correspond to  gitconfig text files.

Note that the git config command is not relevant for ELM Global Configurations or this question.

 A git repository is simply a directory containing a special  .git  directory.

This is different from "centralised" version-control systems (like subversion), where a "repository" is hosted on a remote server, which you  checkout  into a "working copy" directory. With git, your working copy is the repository.

Simply run  git init  in the directory which contains the files you wish to track.

For example,

cd ~/code/project001/
git init

This creates a  .git  (hidden) folder in the current directory.
