Version Control System

The version control system (VCS) by SimpleOne is a built-in engine that enables the users to track and manage changes to the business logic implemented by the platform tools. The business logic of the platform is implemented with the configuration records including business rules, client scripts, ACLs, form views, and others.

Each configuration record has at least one snapshot, a VCS record that contains all the up-to-date information about the configuration record at the time the version snapshot was created. Any change to a configuration record generates a new actual version of this record, while all the old versions are preserved.

The changes to configuration records that have been saved and packed in packages can be transferred between different instances of the platform. During the pre-check before importing a retrieved package, you may receive notifications about possible errors and collisions, which also contain recommendations for solving the problems occurred. Thanks to this, the application of the received packages to the current instance or their migration is safe for the system.

All the aspects above guarantee the portability of applications and the absence of errors when updating them and the entire platform.

The articles below provide all the information you need to get started with version control system and configuration package management.

Development Recommendations

This article provides general guidelines for getting started with creating new applications and use of configuration packages. In particular, it describes the VCS record naming policy and the security policy.

System Configuration Updates

The correct update of the system and its applications is directly related to the protection policy of each VCS record. The SimpleOne version control system can distinguish the changes made by a client, which also contributes to a faster resolution of the emerging issues during the upgrade process. Read the article carefully to avoid conflicts and errors when updating the system.


This set of articles gives a quick guide on creating a new application, a local pack, and recommendations on their building and deployment.

Configuration Packages

This set of articles describes the whole and precise process of working on a local pack – from assembling to implementing it on different instances. It also describes the ways to avoid or manage all possible collisions, and the rollback option.
