How to: Add Elements to the Version Control Server [AX 2012]

Updated: August 16, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

After you set up the server that runs the Version Control System (VCS), you must add models that contain elements from your master copy of Microsoft Dynamics AX to the VCS server.

Create a repository folder on your computer. When you add the Application Object Tree (AOT) elements to the server, a copy of each object is also added to your repository folder.

  1. Open Windows Explorer.

  2. Create a new folder to use as your local repository folder, such as C:\AX_dev\Root.


You must specify your local repository folder in the Version control parameters form. For more information, see How to: Set Up Local Version Control Parameters (Developer)

  1. Click Version control > Add model to version control.

  2. In Check-in description, describe the check-in.

  3. In Model ID, select the model you want to add to the version control system.

  4. In Model repository folder, specify the location of the model folder in your local repository. For example, C:\AX_dev\Root\PrimaryAXApplication\ModelA.

  5. Click OK.


    This process can take a while, depending on the computer and network speed.
