Comparing resources with repository versions

To compare Workbench resources with those in the repository:

  1. Select a resource in one of the navigation views.
  2. From the resource's pop-up menu, select one of the following menu items:
    • Compare With > Latest From <Branch Name> or <Version>- Compare the Workbench resource with the latest resources currently committed to the branch that the local project is shared with or if the local project is checked out as a version then compare against the version. A compare editor will be opened. This editor will display a tree of all resource differences between the workspace resource and the latest resources in the repository.
    • Compare With > Another Branch or Version - Compare the Workbench resource with a specific version or branch that you select in the repository. A compare editor will be opened. The editor will display a tree of all resource differences between the workspace resource and the resources in the specified version or branch.
    • Compare With > History... - (available only on a file) Compare the Workbench file with another revision of the file. Based on your preference settings, either the History view or a dialog will open. The History view (or dialog) will contain a table of all available revisions of the selected file. Selecting one of the revisions will show the differences between the workspace revision and the selected revision.

Tip: When comparing with a branch or version, you can specify a particular date instead of a version or branch tag. This can be done by right clicking on the Dates category in the tag selection list and choosing Add Date. A Date Tag dialog is displayed that allows you to specify a date and optionally a time. After you click Ok, the date tag will appear in the tag selection list.
