Default Mirth and Version Control

Hi All,

Are you talking about version control of your channels? If so, you can load the history plugin. Then, right click on the channel and select history.

For us, we use Team Foundation for version control and just export all of our channels and load them into TF. Since all of the channels are exported in XML format, you should be able to use just about anything for version control.

We also have a DEV and PROD Mirth Connect instance. We check-out the channel from TF, only develop/test on the DEV, and move the channel to PROD when we are sure it works, and then check it back into TF when done.

I am not sure where you get the plug-in. The only reason that I know it is a plug-in, is that we had to do a restore recently. This is not for subversion. The version control is done on Mirth itself with this plug-in.

At my former company, we would export the channels to XML after a code change then manually check them into source control. Since it's an XML file, the diff tools work reasonably well and give a general idea of what was changed.
We even went so far as to pin the production version, check it out, make changes, test, check in new version. Once the code is actually deployed, we unpin it.
This way anyone doing "get latest" would always get what was in production.

The Channel History Plugin is available with support and provides channel versioning, diff, and reverting from within the Administrator:
