Configuring the cloned, staging environment to support branch merging

If you use branches, you can use Deployment Manager to merge them on the cloned, staging environment into the base application. You can also run other merge tasks, such as receiving feedback for branch reviews.

Many development teams can perform branch development in their base applications. If your application does not currently support branch development, follow these steps to enable it in your application:

  1. Create an operator ID. For more information, see Creating an operator ID.

  2. Provide the operator with access to Dev Studio:

    1. In Dev Studio, click Operator icon Access group .
    2. In the Available portals section, click Add portal.
    3. In the Name field, press the Down arrow key and select Developer.
    4. Click Save.
  3. Allow the operator to check out rules:

    1. In Dev Studio, click Operator icon Operator .
    2. Click Security.
    3. Click the Allow rule check out check box.
    4. Click Save.
  4. Use the New Application wizard to create a new development application for developers to log into. For more information, see step 2 in Configuring the development system for branch-based development.

  5. Configure the system by configuring the RMURL dynamic system setting. For more information, see step 1 in Configuring the development system for branch-based development.
