Note: When merging application configurations, you can only merge individual elements within the application configuration if the
application configurations are of the same type. If the application configurations are of differing types, for example a web
application and a standard application, you can merge only the entire application configuration.
Note: When you are trying to merge test logic statements, for example an
If statement or a
Silk Test Workbench ensures that the target visual test does not break if the merge is applied. If merging a statement would break the visual
Silk Test Workbench displays an error message and does not merge the change.
- Changes are highlighted in amber.
- Additions are highlighted in green.
- Items that do not exist in one of the compared assets are grayed out.
Note: While a
Silk Test Workbench user is comparing or merging an active version of an asset, the asset is locked and cannot be edited by another user. If
an asset is already open for editing in another window and you try to compare or merge an active version of the the asset,
the version is opened in read-only mode. This is indicated in the title bar of the version.
