Merge projects

Merge projects when you want to merge parallel developments.

For example, you may want to merge the Maintenance and Development, or a previous customization into the latest development release. Rather than merging at the item level, you can merge the projects, either into an existing project or into a new one.

Note: This option is not available for streams. For details on merging streams, see Work with streams.
