Enhanced features for branches

Several enhancements have been made to branches so that you can quickly view the contents of a branch and details about the branch, such as merge conflicts.

You can view the branches in your application by clicking App > Branches. You can expand a branch to view the type and number of rules that are in the branch.

In addition, you can add a branch from and push a branch to a repository on a remote system of record, which you can use to store assets and provide versioning and metadata support. In a continuous integration and delivery pipeline, repositories provide centralized storage for software that is to be tested, released, or deployed.
