Magic merge kills the repository

Post by kuzma.molchanov » Tue Jun 01, 2021 10:52 am

hello, I have a problem with merging branches.
Ranorex 9.3.4,
-2 people simultaneously branched off from the general development branch
-each creates several test cases
When merging two branches branchA and branchB (GIT), magic merge reports that the merge completed without errors, however, when rebuilding the project, ranorex displays errors
The "MasterRepositoryFolders.VnaNGAppFolder" type already contains a definition for the "ListContentListView". (CS0102)
I translated the error text
It turns out that 2 identical items are created in the repository
How to solve this problem?

In my opinion, it's a bad merge caused by incorrect merge process. Have you "manually" reviewed each single conflict Magic Merger most probably suggested? You see, Magic Merger is a handy tool, but not a magic wand, which solves all conflicts automatically! So in many cases, especially in multi-user environment, it's required to setup certain workflow processes how to perform pull, merge and push of code. Ideally, there should be still one person who reviews all conflicts.

Did you rebase branch B on master after merging branch A in the master ?
