Using DeltaJSON Graft

Graft Operations

DeltaJSON Graft allows you to apply changes defined in a JSON delta file to any other JSON file containing data. This operation finds use in version control systems where changes between different versions on a branch need to be cherry picked and applied to another branch in the project.

Graft Parameters/Configuration Options

The Graft Resolution Mode parameter allows you to set the priority of changes in case of conflict using the following values:

  • Changeset Priority (default) - when there are conflicts, choose the version present in the changeset.

  • Target Priority - when there are conflicts, choose the version present in the target.

  • Additions Only - when there are conflicts, choose the target version, and also resolve elements added in the changeset.

Quick steps:

  • Enter the Job Description (identifier for the job) in order to make it easier to locate the job/operation later.
