Check Out Branch

Filter by IDE
Select the Progress AppBuilder client you are currently using for development.

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.

To change the branch you are currently developing in, you need to check out a branch. If you check out a remote-only branch, this will automatically create a corresponding local branch.

A local branch is the branch of your private repository managed by the built-in version control services. In the Provider cell, a cloud icon indicates that the branch is local.

A remote branch is a branch of the remote repository managed by your third-party Git provider. In the Provider cell, a Git provider-related icon indicates the branch is remote.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your preferred AppBuilder client is running and you are logged in.
  • Verify that you have opened the code for your app in AppBuilder.
  • Verify that you have committed all pending changes.
  • Verify that you have synchronized the state of your local repository with the remote repository.
