    PDM standard: limit number of versions

    Jake Bakerin

      I used to use "working copy" in workgroup PDM

      Now using PDM standard, is there a way to limit the number of versions each time a file is checked in?

          Hi Jake, no. PDM will create a new version of file every time you check it in after it has been changed.

           

          However, you can use the "Overwrite latest version" option when checking in to append your changes to the latest version rather than creating a new one.

           

          Kind regards

           

          Prasad.

              Sorry for not clear in the OP

              I mean a preset number in Admin tools so when the when the number of preset is reached, the oldest version is removed and the new version will be the last one

              In the other words, only certain number of versions are kept in Vault

                  Hi Jake, ok no problem. Yes there is a feature called Cold Storage in the Admin Tool - you can choose to keep the latest "x" number of versions, eg if you choose to keep the latest 10 versions of a file, then when version 11 of a file is checked in, version 1 is cold stored (which can either mean moved to another location from the archive server, or deleted permanently)

                   

                  You also have options such as never cold store versions tagged as revisions.

                   

                  Kind regards
