Change palette between streams with an exclude rule.

0 Likes

QUESTION:
What happens if you promote a file from one stream to another stream via change palette and the target stream has an exclude run that excludes the directory to which the file resides.?

ANSWER:
If you try to perform a change palette on a stream that has excluded a directory, for example:

Main_stream -- Int_stream -- QA_stream -- WS_1
|
|
Test_stream -- Test2_stream


1. WS_1 creates 2 directories, Dir1 and Dir2, both contain an element.

2. WS_1 promotes up to Main_stream, Test and Test2_stream both inherit
these directories.

3. In Test2_stream, exclude Dir2

4. In WS_1 add another element in Dir2

5. Promote changes up to Int_stream

6. Select QA_stream -> change palette -> Select Test2_stream.

7. In Change Palette browser, you will see the new element added in Dir2

8. Select element and click Promote.

9. You will get a warning stating you will need to modify
include/exclude rule first in order to work with this element.
