IDE

This article is applicable to the in-browser client, the universal desktop client and the classic Windows desktop client. For information about version control in the extension for Visual Studio, see Use version control in Visual Studio.

When you use third-party version control, you might need to synchronize your local version of the app with the remote repository. To synchronize locally, you need to pull from the remote repository. You pull changes from your remote Git repository to your local AppBuilder repository.

You need to pull changes when you are working in collaboration with other users or when you have made changes to the app in the repository without AppBuilder.

You are prompted to pull changes from the remote repository when you attempt to push to the repository and AppBuilder identifies conflicts.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your preferred AppBuilder client is running and you are logged in.
  • Verify that you have opened the code for your app.
  • Verify that you do not have pending changes.
    For uncommitted changes, version control icons appear in the Project Navigator. For more information, see Identify Pending Changes.

This operation also fetches the state of the remote repository and updates the status of your branches.
