Go Up to Project Manager


View > Project Manager | right-click a project under SVN | Subversion > Switch > From Repository Root

Switch updates an existing working local repository to reflect a different branch from the remote repository. Switch starts downloading the changed files From Repository Root (at the top level of the repository) from the new branch.

Note: Switch transfers only the changed data to your local repository, whereas checkout downloads everything from the desired branch into your local repository.


To start switching a branch and updating the files of your local repository:

  1. Start the Switch to Branch dialog box: Project Manager | right-click a project under SVN | Subversion > Switch > From Repository Root
  2. Fill according to the new repository branch settings:
    Item Description

    To path

    Insert the name of the new branch that you want to use with your local repository copy.
    Click Ellipsis next to the path of the new branch to open the Repository Browser dialog box and show all remote repository branches.

    Revision

    Determine in which revision the target is first looked up.
    Click the Show Log button to Repository Browser and show remote repository log.

    Switch Depth

    Limit the scope of the switch operation to a particular tree depth.


  3. Click the OK button.
