Hi,
I have two development streams for 3Q and 4Q project. If one has a 3Q defect fix, he needs to check into both streams. Though he can by change flow target to check into both stream to save some time, it is still some sort of duple effort.
My question is do we have some to connect two streams together in RTC. Then if someone delivered something into one stream, the other stream will got the change as well. I heard in CMVC there is a function LINK could do the work.
Thanks a lot for your help!

Jonathan,

as far as I know there is currently no automation for that. I don't know how CMVC does it, but there is a likelyhood, that the fix might need more changes in the other stream.

You can either accept the change set in the repository workspace loaded with the other version, or you could change the flow target and deliver the change.

Thanks Ralph. I heard from one of my colleague about the link function in CMVC. He said developer could checkin a file into both releases as long as the file in both releases stay the same. Only those files have difference in two releases need to be checked in separately.

This would be a nice addition. I would suggest creating a work item to get this kind of capabilities.

Somewhat I may not suggest this idea like to sync between 2 streams. This should be manuall. This is the reason we have 2 different streams to work  two different things, so that later (if required) we can merge/sync.

This is not possible currently, but I agree it would be a useful feature.  I've submitted a work item for it:
https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/com.ibm.team.workitem.WorkItem/218499
Please check the description of that work item, to verify that this is the functionality you were looking for.
