Merge a Baseline into a Stream wizard

The Merge a Baseline into a Stream wizard helps you merge changes from a baseline into a target stream.

Merge uses a work area to apply changes and process conflicts. This enables you to safely merge, build, and test before delivering the merge results to a target stream in a repository.
