Version History Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and components, API testing, and business process tests and flows

This dialog box enables you to view the version history for an asset, and depending on the type of asset, view the content of a previous asset version and compare two asset versions.

To access
  • From most assets: Open the asset and select the ALM > Version History menu command.
  • From a recovery scenario (GUI testing only): In the Recovery Scenario Manager, open the recovery scenario, click the Version Control down arrow, and select Version History.
Important information

To view a version for an asset: Select a version and click View.

To compare two versions of an asset: Select two versions and click Compare.

You cannot check out an earlier version of an asset from this dialog box. (You can check out earlier version of most assets directly from the ALM project. For details on checking out assets from ALM, see the ALM user guide.)
