Versions Manager

BluInsights offers you a feature to compare different Versions of your Codebase projects.

Create a new comparison

The creation of a new project comparison requires a name for your comparison and two different projects: a Reference project and a Latest project. Once your comparison is ready, you will be redirected to the Versions Manager page.

Version Manager Pages

A Versions Manager project contains several pages with different information about your comparison.

Dashboard

The dashboard contains a summary of the comparison with a reminder of your Reference and Latest project. The number of unmodified files and lines of code as well as their difference is available. Some graphs are also available to visualize the difference in files and lines between the two versions of your project.

Comparison

The comparison module lists all the differences found in your project files. It’s divided into three tabs: “Added Files”, “Deleted Files” and “Modified Files”.

  • The “Added Files” tab contains a list of all the files that only exist in the latest project. You can select a file to view its content.
  • The “Deleted Files” tab contains a list of all the files that only exist in the reference project. You can select a file to view its content.
  • The “Modified Files” tab contains a list of all the files that exist in both projects but have differences (in their number of lines). You can select a group of modified files to compare them.

If one or several files of the comparison have their attributes modified (Workpackage, Status, Description…) in the original projects, those attributes will be updated in the comparison.
However new files are added or some files that are in the comparison are deleted, the comparison will be marked as outdated. A warning icon will appear while the comparison is not relaunched.
