Pull requests and Dimensions CM topic streams

Topic streams are temporary Dimensions CM streams that you use for a set of defined changes, for example, to fix a defect or develop a small feature.

Note: This functionality is relevant only if PulseUno is used with Dimensions CM.

Topic streams enable you to isolate changes from a mainline stream. Topic streams have some limitations compared to normal streams, but the main advantage is they are very quick to create.

A topic stream and its related pull request work together to help you review and merge changes:

  • A topic stream is created from a parent stream, which creates a pull request. You can create topic streams in the Dimensions CM clients.
  • Changes are delivered to the topic stream and related to the pull request.
  • The pull request is reviewed, approved, and merged into the topic stream’s parent stream.

Considerations and behaviors:

  • Reviewers use the pull request to review the changes in the topic stream.
  • The pull request contains the changes in the related topic stream.
  • The request related to the pull request is used to merge the changes in the topic stream into its parent stream.

For details about topic streams, see the Dimensions CM help.
