Bridge for Git Explorer
Bridge for Git Explorer enables you to work with work-environment Git-Endevor mappings that are synchronized with Endevor using Endevor Bridge for Git. When you work with a work-environment mapping, you may need to add elements from up the Endevor map back to your mapping. Bridge for Git Explorer reads the information about the mapping that you cloned in your VS Code workspace and provides a list of elements from up the map for that particular Endevor inventory location.
Ensure that you meet the following prerequisites before you use Bridge for Git Explorer:
Create an Endevor profile and an EBG profile and review use cases to see how you can use the full potential of Bridge for Git Explorer.
The Bridge for Git Explorer extension uses credentials of your Endevor profile to provide you with the list of elements that you can add to your synchronized mapping. Before you can use the extension, ensure that you create two types of profiles: an Endevor profile and an EBG profile.
Note: Skip the following procedures if you already have the required profiles.
You now can access your work-environment mapping in your workspace and start to use the extension.
Note: If you do not have a profile for the Endevor web services instance that was used to create the synchronized Git-Endevor mapping, the application prompts you to provide your mainframe credentials for that web services instance. The application then creates a session during which you can add elements to your mapping.
