Introduction:

From version 2.2 onwards, InTime provides a feature to synchronize results (metadata) to and from your InTime Server.

This synchronization process ensures that users working on different workstations can access and learn from InTime builds that were executed using the same or even related designs. Because you may not want to sync results all the time (for example, teams designing different products may want to keep their InTime data in separate databases) for all designs, InTime gives fine-grained control over the synchronization.

Example use-case: User A and B work on different copies of the same project, and issue InTime builds from different workstations.

central database (superdb)

 

 

Backing Up Results (for any user):

User A's initial results:

tom_result

User A tells InTime to automatically backup results to the InTime Server after each job by setting the Strategies -> Auto-Sync Results property to True (default: True). Set this property to False to backup results at a later time.

 

Importing Results:

If User B wants to import User A's results, User B opens the design in InTime and goes to File > Import Results.
Then, a Wizard pops up for User B to import results directly from the InTime Server.

  1. Select the option to import from the InTime Server.
  2. Next, select the project to import results into.
  3. Finally, select the result(s) to import.

If no results are available, you may not have sufficient InTime Server Access Control List privileges.

After syncing the data, User B's InTime history will be updated:

julie_imported

Note: The (local) "Job ID" field may be automatically changed to resolve conflicts with a job bearing the same Job ID.
