How Do I Archive a Branch within Perforce
In SVN, a branch exists as a separate directory. However in Perforce, files are given a label to identify them as belonging to the branch. Thus it may not be possible to download the branch as a tarball via FishEye.
You may be able to download the branch as a tarball, depending on your structure:
If it is not a single folder, then it is not possible to download the tarball in your perforce repository.
- In FishEye, navigate to your perforce repository.
- In the Constraint section on the left, select the branch. This will return the directories that belong to that branch.
- If it is one single folder, download the tarball of it. Under
constraint and sub directories, there is a panel tarball giving options on how to download the directory.
