    Can you help me understand how to go about doing a selective content migration. I'll try to outline the business scenario. We have an existing Sitefinity website in production. We have a project to update this website, and would like to do it in the development environment first. Let's say it involves developing a new masterpage, a new template based on that, and also a few new pages based on the new template. Now, when everything is tested and we are ready to deploy to production, I understand how to go about migrating the masterpage and other file system elements. However, is there a way to selectively move just the newly created database constructs to the production database. Moving/copying  the entire database is not an option since there are many differences (including users & access levels) between the development and production versions.

    Hello Mahendra,

    The only way that you can work selectively with the database is using third party dabase replication tool and schema comparssion tool that could track the changes and then you can perform a merge.
