Third, we have new, long-awaited functionalities. When transferring the data back to the source system from a provisional specification, you can choose to give a change number. You can also choose if you want to overwrite any existing data or not. If not, the system creates a new instance for you.
Note: Due to some technical limitations, as of now you can’t overwrite with a change number, but we are working on that scenario as well.
