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.

  1. In FishEye, navigate to your perforce repository.
  2. In the Constraint section on the left, select the branch. This will return the directories that belong to that branch.
  3. 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.
