Promoting a snapshot into test-stream

N. VD (842434) | asked Oct 28 '14, 10:51 a.m.
Hi Forum, I seem not to understand the deployment process.
Maybe I'm getting it all wrong... or I'm just missing something.

Lets say we have 3 streams:
- development
- test
- production

I also have 3 components:
- Frontend
- Webservices
- Backend
==> These 3 components are the same components in all streams.

When I make a snapshot of the current development-stream, and change the owner of the snaphot to test-stream (previously known as promote?) I expect the test stream to contain the same component-baselines & some change sets incoming on the stream?

Am i understanding this correctly?

The owner of a snapshot is just where the snapshot can be found. You can create a stream configuration from the snapshot and it will contain the data you have in the baselines on the components.

If you want the changes in a snapshot to go to a stream, you create a repository workspace from the snapshot, set the flow target to that stream. Pending changes shows you the differences and you can deliver (potentially accept and merge as well). If you want a stream with that snapshot data, you can also create it from the snapshot.

I think there is no command to rebase on a snapshot. You can rebase individual components with then baseline of the stream though.
