From Talend Administration Center and Talend Studio, you can add branches and tags and switch between them.

Talend Studio also allows Git users to merge local branches to remote branches.

Procedure

  1. To create and edit branches and tags, you can either :
    • use the Branch Management option on the Projects page of Talend Administration Center.

      From Talend Administration Center, you can then create an execution task on a Job located in this specific branch or tag via the Job Conductor page.

    • use the MetaServlet createBranch and createTag commands.

    • select the New Branch and More... > Add Tag options in Repository Branch management menu of the Talend Studio Repository.

  2. (Git only) To merge branches you need to:
    1. check out your remote branch B as a local branch with the same branch name in the Talend Studio Repository.
    2. update the local branch B using the remote branch A as the source to pull from, using the Pull And Merge Branch option from the drop-down menu.
    3. resolve any conflicts that occurred during the branch update.
    4. push your local branch B to the remote end.

      For more information on Git merge operations, see the Talend Studio User Guide.
