Chapter 13. Importing projects from Git repositories

Git is a distributed version control system. It implements revisions as commit objects. When you save your changes to a repository, a new commit object in the Git repository is created.

Business Central uses Git to store project data, including assets such as rules and processes. When you create a project in Business Central, it is added to a Git repository that is embedded in Business Central. If you have projects in other Git repositories, you can import those projects into the Business Central Git repository through Business Central spaces.

Prerequisites

  • Red Hat Decision Manager projects exist in an external Git repository.
  • You have the credentials required for read access to that external Git repository.

Procedure

  1. In Business Central, click MenuDesignProjects.
  2. Select or create the space into which you want to import the projects. The default space is MySpace.
  3. To import a project, do one of the following:

    • Click Import Project.
    • Select Import Project from the drop-down list.
  4. In the Import Project window, enter the URL and credentials for the Git repository that contains the projects that you want to import and click Import. The projects are added to the Business Central Git repository and are available from the current space.
