Process Apps → About Process Apps → Compare and Merge
You can visually compare two versions of a process app and manually copy selected items from one process app to the other. For example, suppose you receive a new version of a solution that you previously deployed. The solution contains a process app; before deployment, you changed it to meet your specific needs and processes. Now you want to upgrade to the new version, while keeping the changes you made to the earlier version.
This feature lets you view both versions of the process app side-by-side in SBM Composer. You can see the items that differ between them, copy new items from the new version, and modify existing items to match the new version. You can "dismiss" differences you do not want to merge, so there is no need to process them again if you need to finish the comparison in a later session. If you localized a process app, you can specify that the translated strings are not displayed as differences when you compare it with a new, unlocalized version.
Paul examines the differences between the version 2.1 and 3.0 process apps. Because the changes to version 3.0 are quite substantial compared to his changes, he copies his changes from version 2.1 into version 3.0.
