If you’re new to Qlik Sense, start with this Discussion Board and get up-to-speed quickly.
I need to implement version control and possibly automated documentation for qlikview and sense in a small coworking environment.
I would like to:
- have a procedure that can allow multiple people to work on a project with no fear of saving over each other's work, (development -> staging -> production )
- avoiding scattered "archives" folders
- a tool for genereting documentation
So far I found only old postsin the community (2014 or before) while I think there are several new tools we can choose from. Sadly I have no idea what to choose between them so if anyone want to share his experience in this matter is welcome
Team Foundation (TFS) is Microsoft's version control system. Like CVS, SVN or GIT, it can be used to version and manage QlikView's -prj folders. Some people have success using the -prj facility to do their versioning and team parallel development. This is a viable approach.
There is some integrated support for source control in the QlikView Developer File menu. However, you don't need to use the integrated menu, you can use desktop tools of the version control system (eg TortiseSVN, Git Desktop, etc)
You can have a look at WIP from ebiexperts. It's a lifecycle management solution for managing your files from requirement (Kanban), source control, quality management, publications, and audits. Fully integrated to QV & QS.
There is a webinar video once you have logged in that gives a pretty good overview of the product - www.ebiexperts.com
With my team we are investigating what is the best option for us, I think there is not a single correct answer to this question but I'll let you know what our choice will be.
Thanks everyone who have answered already and to who will add even more info later.
There where some drawback in the TFS approach, one of them was the variables values lost after checkout causing a lot of disagreements.
