Regarding Central code repository (Version Control)

Currently my firm has only one SAS server. In near future, they are trying to get a new production server. Therefore we will have a development/test server and a production server. We want to establish a central code repository for code storage/modify/retrieval purpose for all the SAS networks. Can you list the SAS recommended code repository tools for this purpose? Thanks !

Re: Regarding Central code repository (Version Control)

EG project files are only readable by EG. You cab still put then under external version control, but you can't use any functionality outside EG to determine differences between versions.
Also, the latest version of EG comes with a simple built in version control mechanism. Check that out to see if that could suit (part of) your needs.

Re: Regarding Central code repository (Version Control)

What kind of code are in scope?
If you are using plain Base SAS programs you cold basically chose any repository that suits your needs. SAS programs are text files and could possible be handled the same way as any other program language.
If you are using DI Studio or wish to version control EG projects there are a few more considerations.

I suggest you check if IT in your company already have supported version control software. Its a lot easier and quicker to tap into company-supported version control software than to setup your own.

@krishnaram101

There is version Control for SAS EG in its latest version

 

But just to be clear: This is some sort of change control WITHIN the same EG project. It is not version control between "copies" of the "same" EG project in different environments.
