New Merge Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and components

This dialog box enables you to select two object repositories to merge.

To access

In the Object Repository Merge Tool Main Window, do one of the following:

  • Select File > New Merge.
  • Click the New Merge button in the toolbar.
Important information
  • An object repository that is currently open by another user is locked. If you try to merge a locked file, a warning message displays, but you can still perform the merge because the merge process does not modify the source files. Note that changes made to the locked file by the other user may not be included in the merged object repository.

  • If this dialog box opens automatically, but you want to change the configured settings before merging the object repositories, click Cancel to close the New Merge dialog box, change the settings as described in Settings Dialog Box (Object Repository Merge Tool), and then open this dialog box again to perform the merge.

  • To improve efficiency of the merge process, select as your primary object repository the object repository in which you have invested the most effort, meaning the object repository with more objects, object properties, and values.
