how to branch/fork from main via TFS Online?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am using TFS Online (Free Plan). I am wondering how I can create a child-branch from main? Specifically

    1) How to create a child branch from main branch (how to fork)?

    2) How to make a reverse integration? (applying changes/improvements in child branch back to parent/main branch)?

    3) How to make a forward integration? (applying changes/improvements in main/parent branch to a child branch)?

    4) Do you support above operations through TFS Online's web site? If not, how can I use a command line tool to perform such operations in my case (i.e. with a TFS online free account)?

    Thanks,

    - Mario

    Regarding first three points, it's exactly like TFS on-premises, and you can refer to this link for how to do it:

    Regarding the last point, as far as I know, there are no to do it with web access or CMD.
