Version Control

Flux does not provide a built-in VCS mechanism. Workflows can be downloaded to XML files, from the Repository and the Designer, so if version control is required, Flux recommends the following:

  1. During workflow design, save workflows to the Repository as normal.
  2. Once the workflow is in a state where it should be committed to the VCS, use the “Download” option from the Repository to download a local copy of the file.
  3. Place the file into the VCS and commit / update as normal through the VCS tool’s interface.

Many VCS applications will offer XML comparison/change tracking tools out of the box, while others, like Git, can be extended through custom merge drivers, allowing you to track specific changes within a workflow using standard VCS tools.
