Will RTC build automatically accepts from multi flow targets

Hello,

In build definition, we point to a build repository workspace which has 2 components and 2 flow targets:

- component A is from stream A
- component B is from stream B

The stream A is the "current" and "default" flow target.

In "Pending Changes" view, I can only see the changes from 1 flow target at a time.

I wonder if RTC build is able to automatically accepts changes from both flow targets? Or if not, how can we switch the "current" flow target during build?

Thanks.

A build will accept from all flow targets. So when you set up the build's workspace, you will need to scope the flow targets. In the workspace editor, add streams A and B to the flow target. Select stream A and click Edit. Select component A as the only component to flow. Do the same with stream B and component B.

As Tim pointed out, it's important to not have the same component coming from multiple flow targets. The link below is a technote showing an exception you might see if you have the same component coming from multiple accept sources.

I believe that should get the changes from the streams that you want.

Thanks for confirming this.

We don't have same component coming from multiple accept sources, so we should be good.

Thanks.
