Preview of changes

If you access a preview in the ChangeSet from the changes lists or by right-clicking in the tree view, you will see exactly the status that corresponds to the current productive status with the changes of the current ChangeSet. You will not get to see changes which are made simultaneously in another ChangeSet.

However, you also have the possibility of including changes from other ChangeSets in the preview. Using checkboxes you can select the ChangeSets to be included in this preview. These settings will now also be used for future previews accessed in the normal way.

Rightclick-Contextmenu in the live enviroment

This setting will be applied until the session in the preview browser expires due to user inactivity. This value is set to a default of 15 minutes.

Pick the ChangeSets, which should be included to the Preview

In this way you can look at different work statuses separately as well as a combination of several of them.


Your enterprise is working on the website relaunch mentioned above. The new layout is to go online at a particular time. There is ChangeSet for this relaunch.

At the same time, a Christmas Special is being worked on which is to be put online for a certain period. The peculiarity here is that the Special is to go online before the relaunch, and is also to stay there for some time after the relaunch. This Special also has its own ChangeSet.

A preview can be created within each one of the ChangeSets during the QA phase, meaning you can see the Special with the old layout or the new layout without Special.

If you now access the preview from the productive area, you can activate the two ChangeSets for this preview in the assistant and thus check what the Special looks like together with the new layout.
