Management → Managing Components → Component Versions → Importing Component Versions → Maintaining Versions Externally
If you deselect Copy to CodeStation for a component, this tells Deployment Automation to maintain the full versions for that component only in the integrating source configuration tool.
If you do this, the version management for the component is limited as follows:
To mitigate this, if you want to download an earlier version, edit the component details and deselect Use Latest Component Properties for Version Download. By selecting or deselecting this setting before downloading, you can download versions from the current or original location, based on the component property settings. If you have changed the repository or connection parameters more than once between imports, you may not be able to download some versions.
To ensure better performance, versions that are not stored in CodeStation are cached in local storage in the server profile. By default, versions are kept in local storage for 24 hours, and then deleted. When a new download request is initiated, the server checks local storage first and provides the content from there if it is found. Otherwise, the server downloads the version and puts it in local storage. If needed, you can change the cache time as follows:
<versionCacheCleanUpConfig> <scheduledTimeInHRS>12</scheduledTimeInHRS> </versionCacheCleanUpConfig>
If you decide to select Copy to CodeStation after previously deselecting, Deployment Automation begins copying the full version into CodeStation. The inventory maintains its integrity.
