What if…? Source control is built into Dataverse.

What if…? Source control is built into Dataverse.

Microsoft is focusing on building ALM pipelines into the platform and blocking unmanaged customizations.

But would it not be nice if you didn’t need an external source control system? Dataverse makes sure every change is recorded as a version. You could see who changed what and even revert changes?

Branching out to a new environment (a fork) and then merging back (pull request).

It already works with layers and calculating differences between the layers. Would it be easy to add on full source control?

What do you think?
