About #

Ancestry syntax in HPE ML Data Management is used to reference the history of commits and branches in a HPE ML Data Management input repository. Ancestry syntax is similar to Git syntax, and it allows users to navigate the history of commits and branches using special characters like ^ and ..

Ancestry syntax allows users to access historical versions of data stored in HPE ML Data Management, which can be useful for tasks like debugging, testing, and auditing. However, it’s important to note that resolving ancestry syntax can be computationally intensive, especially for long chains of commits, so it’s best to use this feature judiciously.
