Adding UNC Source Control Profiles

To create a UNC source control profile:

  1. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  2. Click the Source Control tab. The Source Control page opens, listing all of the source control profiles that have been created for the system.
  3. Click New Profile to open the New Source Control Profile dialog box.
  4. Type a Name for the new profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where the profiles are available for selection.
  5. Select UNC from the Source control system list box.
  6. Type the UNC path that you want to access. This is the path to the location where your test sources are located.
    Tip: To avoid checking out unnecessary files, specify the folder at a hierarchy level where the sources reside that are actually required for test execution.
  7. Optional: Type the Common working folder to which the Silk Central execution server should copy the source files. The working folder must be a local path. For example, C:\TempSources\.
    Warning: It is recommended to leave this field empty and let Silk Central use a temporary working folder instead. Specifying a static working folder can lead to unexpected results when running parallel executions. The temporary location can be queried from the predefined parameter #sctm_source_root_dir. If you do require a static working folder, make sure that it is not located within the specified UNC path, as this will lead to recursive checkouts.
  8. Type a valid UNC username and UNC password. These credentials are required to access the UNC path of the configuration file.
  9. Click OK.

    Silk Central attempts a trial connection to the external system using the information you have provided.

    Note: If an error occurs, please review the information that you have supplied, or consult your administrator.

If the trial connection is successful, you are returned to the Source Control page.
