What do you mean ‘without affecting the compliance rules’ ? what exactly are you trying to update in the template ?
Thank you Bill for being that fast answering my post.
I'm writting about compliance rules but they could be also local proterties or whatever.
first of all, keep in mind that these 2 environments could be in different countries or whatever.
well, I'll give you an example, I could have these 2 component templates which are completely identical after exporting and importing, and then some compliance rules could be Added/Deleted in the imported Component Template (the new one) because it is managed by some other group of people which doesnt include me.
then I could change some compliance rules on the source/original component template and I might want them to be included in the imported Template.
As far as I tried , if I update the imported Template I get these changes I did overwrited by the original Templates' rules...so its updating but also deleting all the changes I made...
I dont know if I've explained it properly...
thank you so much for your attention
you can import the changed template into a different location and then manually copy in the rule changes or other changes. there's no 'merge' at the part/object level w/ in a template right now which seems to be what you want to do.
another way to handle this is to only allow changes to one of the templates.
Thank you so much for the answer! Now I can keep developing the project following some other ways.
