Merging only selected work items from a stream to a child stream

Varun Malisetty (1123) | asked Mar 19 '13, 5:08 a.m.
We are planning to create a child stream(for each major release, at the time of release) from the integration stream and continue to use the child stream for that particular release. 

Say, we've created this child stream on 1st Feb 2013. Development continues on the integration stream and nothing is delivered into the child stream. So, from 1st Feb to 30th April we deliver several work items to the integration stream and some of the work items are identified as changes that needs to go to the child stream as well. All such work items will be marked with a specific tag. 

Now, is there a way to deliver only the change sets associated with these work-items into the child stream from the integration stream.

If you create a stream Flow between your stream, you will be able to see the difference between your streams.

Just open a Stream and add another stream to its "Flow Target". It's below the component section.

After that right click on the stream and Show->Pending Changes. It will open a view where you'll see incoming and outgoing changes between your streams. If developers has checked-in their changes by relating them to a workitem you will be able to see the workitems.

Hope that it helps you

Hello Canberk, 

For this above scenario, Is there a way to see the pending changes  on stream using scm commands. ( Like we use scm status commands to see pending changes in a workspace)

I havent use SCM commands but you can follow for instructions. You will see that ther's a compare command. That might help you.
