Merging Topology Types

The Cartridge for Integration provides the capability to replace a property. This replaces the whole list in the topology with the list that was fed in. When using Federation and Cartridge for Integration, child topologies are merged, not replaced, with the topology on the federation master. This may cause the topologies to be out of synchronization between the federated server and the federation server.
A simple example, using only one child with a federation master:Property ‘example’ is a list of strings. The child server sets ‘example’ to ‘A’ and ‘B’. This data is correctly synchronized on the master.
Next, for the same instance of our object, we replace the values in ‘example' with ‘B’ and ‘C’ using the above method. When the data is synchronized with the master, the federation master shows 'example' with values 'A', 'B', and 'C'.


Compatibility Problem
The Cartridge for Integration version 5.5.8 does not run on the Foglight Management Server version 5.6.2 or higher.

Workaround: Upgrade the Cartridge to Integration to version 5.6.2 or 5.6.3.
