Designer with Git

Hi All,

We are currently on 9.10 webMethods. We are currently trying out Automatic build and deployment.
We have Git Plugin installed on Designer. We are not able to do check-in check-out from Git to designer as we are not getting the option "Create Local Service Development’ when we click on packages.
Attaching the latest Fix details on Designer.

Please suggest.

Thanks & Regards,

Did you install Local Service Development plugin for Designer (Workstation local service development feature)?

– Ensure that the wa?.server.ns.lockingMode parameter is set to system on the Integration Server used as the local development server.

– Ensure that the VCS Integration feature is not configured on the local development server.

– For other details refer “Prerequisites” From service development help guide.

Thanks Mahesh for your reply.

Hi All,

Can anybody suggest how do we do a check-out from Git repo through designer .
I tried both the option - ‘pull’ and ‘fetch upstream’ but getting the message as “No ref to fetch from testabe.git - origin - everything up to date.”
Attached screenshot for reference.


Hi Monica,

We are also trying to set up the automatic deployment using GIT and Jenkins.

We are not using the local development using designer workstation.

We connect to server using designer at the local machine.

Can we still use the check in and checkout options for GIT from designer or do we need to use the GIT client for the same.


Hi Amit,

We need designer workstation to create local service development.
Then we can use GIT client to check-in and check -out.
