TFS - Unshelve shelvesets
If you ever come across a scenario where you want to unshelve a shelve set into a branch other than the one it's saved in, then it's an ideal case to use TFS Power tools.

use tfpt unshelve to achieve unshelving of a shelve set to a different branch

Syntax

/>tfpt unshelve [shelvesetname[;username]] [/nobackup][/migrate /source:serverpath /target:serverpath]

  • shelvesetname          The name of the shelveset to unshelve 
  • /nobackup              Skip the creation of a backup shelveset 
  • /migrate               Rewrite the server paths of the shelved items                          (for example to unshelve into another branch) 
  • /source:serverpath     Source location for path rewrite (supply with /migrate) 
  • /target:serverpath     Target location for path rewrite (supply with /migrate) 
  • /undo                  Undo pending changes from an unshelved shelveset 
  • /batchsize:num         Set the batch size for server calls (default 500)
Sample
you saved a shelveset into Dev branch with the title 'Test Shelve set'. Now you wish to unshelve it into PROD branch. Use the below command -

/> tfpt unshelve “Test Shelve set” /nobackup /migrate /source:”$/MyTeamProject/DevBranch” /target:”$/MyTeamProject/ProdBranch”
