API Connect Designer toolkit Integration with Git Repo

We need OOTB (Out of the box) feature of IBM API Connect to integrate with various source control tools/repository like Git etc. 

Like most of the IDEs provide this feature of directly check-in/check-out in Repo, similarly we are looking in API Connect Designer toolkit, so that API designer / developer can directly integrate their APIs yaml in repo. 

Having this feature has many advantages as it facilitates syncing of code base for continuous integration. In addition, if the latest code is committed in repo, and in absence of one developer, other developers can import the latest version from the repo and work on it. It would reduce the manual effort of exporting the artefacts from the APIC designer and committing those in repo. In general, there are many advantages of the integration of repo/SCM tools with IDE.

    API Connect Designer (desktop installed tool) works with files on the filesystem which can be synced folders with a source control system. All of the development that I personally do with API Connect Designer is against files that are then synced using Github Desktop back to my public or internal enterprise repos. The same project folders have assets that I use with other development tools based on my project scope (e.g. VSCode, WebStorm, XCode). By interacting with the filesystem you are not limited to a specific source control system or waiting on updated plugin with our local graphical developer tooling.

    Outside of not being able to interact with the source control system directly from our graphical editor all of the capabilities as described are already able to be accomplished.

    We will leave the ticket open for 60 days for additional details, clarifications, or feedback. Thanks.
