versioning and automated documentation

Hello,

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


thanks

Re: versioning and automated documentation

Thanks for the quick answer. in4bi is indeed alluring, in older posts I read you write about a 'team foundation' project. May I ask if you abandoned it?

Re: versioning and automated documentation

To make versioning of a prj Qlikview folder I used SVN with Tortoise as client and it worked very well.

About Qlik Sense you can take a look at this extension Qlik Branch.

Re: versioning and automated documentation

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)

Hi Riccardo

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

Regards

Re: versioning and automated documentation

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.

Re: versioning and automated documentation

There where some drawback in the TFS approach, one of them was the variables values lost after checkout causing a lot of disagreements.
