When working in a team on a single app version control is important. This guide contains an introduction to version control within UiPath Process Mining.
A repository is an optimized storage location for apps. Repositories can be located within your installation, on a folder location on the same server as the UiPath Process Mining installation, or on a different (external) server.
A branch is the permanent shared storage for all the files that belong to an app.
A branch contains the latest version of an app as well as the complete history of all changes committed. A branch can also be defined as a list of all revisions that belong together.
A branch contains one or more workspaces. A workspace is a personal copy of a revision from a branch. When you create a new app, the files of the latest revision of a branch are loaded.
In the workspace, you can make changes in preparation for committing them to a branch. After committing your workspace will have no more local modifications.
The workspace is not stored in the repository.
A release is a named reference to a specific revision in a branch. It contains all the files in that revision. Releases are stored in your repository, like branches.
A revision is created when you commit your changes. A revision refers to a specific version of all files that together define an app. The app can contain an application file, but also other files such as a settings file, images, help files, and so on. Revisions are saved to a branch and numbered starting at 1 when a branch is created.
