What is process revision history?
Let's start by defining what we mean by a revision in Skore. A revision in Skore is a snapshot, or back-up, of a Skore process at a point in time.
Revisions are created automatically as you develop the process. They are created every 5 minutes if a change has happened in the last 5 minutes. As a use, you can also manually create a revision if you would like to take control yourself.
Having a history of process revisions provides many benefits:
- See the evolution of a process over time
- Compare the process at different moments in time
- Restore a previous revision as the latest revision
- Approve a revision to create a published version (see this article)
- Revisions are immutable, meaning they are immune to future changes (e.g if a role is renamed an old revisions created before this change will still show the old role name)
Accessing the version history of a process
- From the process list on the workspace: Open the process history
- From the process itself, open "Map properties" and "Process History"
Viewing a revision
Once in the history page you will see all the revisions of a process.
A revision can be opened by clicking the relevant button.
Restoring a revision
Sometimes it is necessary to "reuse" a revision. There are 2 options: make it the editable revision of the process, or create a new process from this revision.
Restore as the editable revision
- The selected revision will be duplicated (remember, revisions are immutable -- except the editable revision)
- The newly created revision is set as the editable revision
- The selected revision is not changed and still exists in the history as it is
Restore as a new process
- A new process is created and the selected revision is added to this process, becoming the editable revision
- the original selected revision is not changed, and still exists in the history as it was
Publishing a revision
(See dedicated article)
Assigning a note to a revision
It is possible to add notes to a process
Creating a snapshot
Snapshots are created automatically every 5 minutes, but as a user you can generate a snapshot manually if you need to.
