Working with Version Management


Advantages of creating the version in version database:

Whenever we need to recover the changes made to the report even if the report gets deleted accidently, we can recover it. This cannot be done if we don’t have any active version in version database.

Let’s demonstrate this by an example as follows:  

Let’s say we have created the version in version database. Delete the report and see if we can recover it.  

Now, let’s try to recover it.  

Put the exact program name and click on version management and click on retrieve button. 

You will be provided with the pop up message saying that current version of the program will be overwritten by an older version. Click ok and it will gives the report back but in INACTIVE form.  


In the version management, there will be 2 versions in the development database.

Activate the report and it will also delete one of the versions from development database and keep only one active version which is ready for your use.  

Note:  When we move the changes from development system to non-prod (then to prod), the version gets automatically created to the version database. In this case, the Version category is “I”.

Please try to retrieve the deleted report without creating the version in version database. Then you will come to know the importance of creating the versions while developing the big reports.
