Branches and branch rulesets
Typically, you use branches in development environments in which multiple teams contribute to a single application. You use branches to develop software in parallel in a version-controlled environment. For example, your teams can develop one feature in a branch while another team develops a feature in a different branch, even if they share the same base rulesets.
After you create branches and create rules in them, you can work with branches in a number of ways. For example, you can create reviews for branches to ensure that they are guardrail-compliant. Also, after feature development is complete, you can merge the changes you made for all features into the base ruleset.
- Configuring an application to use branches and branch rulesets
To use branches in your application, you create a development application that is built on your production application. You create rules and save them in your development application, creating branch rulesets. You can then work with branches in a number of ways, such as creating branch reviews and merging branches.
- Branch operations
After you create branches and develop rules in branch rulesets, you can work with branches in a number of ways. For example, you can create branch reviews with other users, delete branches form the system, and lock branches before you merge them.
