Description

Update/Switch to specific Url

  • Select this checkbox to synchronize your local working copy with a specific repository. Specify the source repository either in the URL field through its full Url address or in the Use Branch field through the branch name.

  • Clear this checkbox to bring the changes from the repository that corresponds to the current working copy.

Use Branch

In this field, specify the location of the required repository through its branch name. Click Browse Browse to choose the required branch in the Select Branch dialog that opens.

Url

In this field, specify the location of the required repository through its full URL address. Click Browse Browse to open the Select Repository Location dialog.

The field is enabled only when the Update/Switch to specific Url checkbox is selected.

Update/Switch to specific revision

Select this checkbox to synchronize your local working copy with a specific revision different from the HEAD revision. The Update/Switch to specific revision field becomes enabled.
In this field, specify the number of the revision to be used. Click Browse Browse button to open the Changes Browser dialog. By default, WebStorm suggests to update your local working copy the HEAD revision. This option corresponds to the --non-recursive (-N) switch of the Subversion update command.

Depth

Use this list to specify the range of recursion into subdirectories. The available options are:
  • Working copy - select this option to get files/directories from repository subtrees that have not been checked out yet.

  • Empty: select this option to involve only the current file.

  • Files: select this option to involve the files in the folder.

  • Immediates: select this option to involve direct children of the current file.

  • Infinity: select this option to enable full recursion.

Force Update

Select this checkbox to have local files replaced with the files from the repository even if the local files have modifications and thus abandon the local modifications.

Ignore Externals

Select this checkbox if you do not want WebStorm take into account externals definitions during update.

Do not show this dialog in the future

Select this checkbox to have WebStorm perform future updates silently.

To have WebStorm show this dialog before update again:

  1. Open the Version Control - Confirmation page of the Settings field.

  2. In the Display Option dialogs when these commands are invoked area, select the Update checkbox.
