Hi Peter,Thanks for reaching out! I walked through this and recreated your workflow. I saw the same auto-selections that you saw in Step 5 and can confirm that you are not seeing them due to any settings or permissions on your end.
From what I could tell, the actual the sync process worked successfully but your question is specifically pointed towards the auto-selection in Step 5. If that correct?
Hi Peter,Thank you for the feedback! I agree, saving those Config/Diff View options could be better explained in our User Guide. I will put in a request to expand on this documentation.
Next, regarding the Green Arrow "Sync All"/Sync Options dialog box. You are correct about there not being the same customizable and savable "views" as the Config Views. However, under the Sync All menu, you can go to Advanced tab and add a rule under reuse options. Once there, add a rule and, when that rule applies, it will appear under the Reuse selection menu. Please visit Sync options window for more information.
Finally, I want to provide more context to the difference between the "Include relationships from the source selection" and the "Include related items and mirror relationships" options. These can look the same to a person reusing, depending on how they have relationships made among the items:
Select Reuse Options includes graphics to differentiate between "Include relationships from the source selection" and "Include related items and mirror relationships" options.
In the above example, from source selection and destination selection, they are both related to C1 because B1 was. In this case C1 might be a shared Requirement between two separate projects, e.g. both the Electric Truck and the Electric Car share the same Battery Requirement.
In this second case, it is actually making a copy of C1 to add to the Destination, so rather than relate the two different items (B1 and B2) to a single item, they are related to the their own unique copies. You might want to do this in the case that you are using Source as a template project, and you want Destination project to have the same vehicle components, and then make changes going forward to each individual requirement because the car and truck should not have the same Battery Requirement.
As an abstract, it could seem like you're accomplishing the same thing with these options but if you play around with these examples in mind, it may help to make more sense of the differences.Please let me know if you have any questions!
