The branch merger by default selects the highest ruleset version in the system to merge in to. Normally, this is great. I have the following scenario though:
App 01.01.01 sees up to version 01-02
App 02.01.01 sees up to version 01-05
When I am logged in to App 01.01.01, the merge wizard selects the next highest version in the system (01-05-02) and NOT the highest that my current app is able to see. From what I can tell, there is no way for me to easily merge into my desired ruleset version (01-02-02), other than first creating the new ruleset version, and then selecting that version from the dropdown. The text box on the right of the dropdown is only a label, so updating that does nothing.
Has anyone else ran into this, and if so, is there a hotfix, or a simple rule that I can private edit and/or override? Is this addressed in later versions of the product?
As a best practice, the recommended apporach is to create a new ruleset version for the base ruleset, independent of the merge wizard. Individual teams should develop rules in their specific branches and then merge those branches into the existing base ruleset version that was created. This process provides you with better control over versions. Please check the document https://community.pega.com/sites/default/files/help_v73/tools/mergewizard/mergeruleset1.htm for reference.
