Clone a repository (GIT)

NeoLoad 7.9 makes it possible to collaborate on test projects using a GIT collaboration server. For more information about configuring the connection to a GIT server, see Configure the connection to a collaboration server.

Once the connection to the GIT server is configured in NeoLoad 7.9, the collaborative project can be retrieved from the server by using the Clone Repository command accessible via the Share menu.
