This article will guide you on how to combine your Connector Projects
This article will consider that you already know how to create Connector Projects. Here you can read more about it.
1. Understanding the concept of combining Connector Projects
In BWX, we have regular Projects where the users can download the translated files directly from BWX and Projects known as continuous, meaning that they are connected to one of the products we provide integration with.
A continuous project will deliver the files directly to where you will need the files. It could be a translated email delivered to Eloqua or a webpage that will be managed in WordPress.
When pulling the files into BWX, you may need to add files after the Project is already created. This is an example where combining Projects would be helpful and the reason we also call them “continuous”.
Currently, it is possible to merge Eloqua, WordPress, GitHub, and Pendo Projects.
To qualify your Projects to be combined, they must fulfill the following requirements:
- Be connected to the same Connector
- Belong to the same Organizational Unit
- Have the “Draft” status in the previously created Project while you are pulling the new IDs
Note that while your Project has the “Draft” status, you will continue being able to create new requests, even if you already have left the “Create Project” page. You just need to go back and create the new pull requests you need.
- Have the same tags
Eloqua: Tags containing the date of the requests will be automatically included in the Projects, and they can not be deleted. This means that we can only combine Eloqua projects/requests when pulling the IDs on the same day.
GitHub: The tag added to your GitHub Config > Repository Configurations will be the one you can edit, considering the needs of your company.
WordPress: Tags containing the date and time of the requests will be automatically included in the Projects, and they can not be deleted. This means that we can only combine WordPress projects/requests when pulling the IDs at the same minute.
Pendo: The only tag we have to keep is the one called “pendo”, which will be automatically added when creating the pull requests.
- Have only one file/ID for each target language. You can not create new pull requests containing the same IDs and target languages
- Have the same source language
3. Combining your Projects
The procedure to merge/combine your Projects is the same as for creating any connector Project, taking into account the requirements previously mentioned.

Once you finish pulling all the content you need, they will be merged into one Project. You can check if the requests are completed when you see the green stamp with the “Done” message:
