Benefits and Description

A Same ID (and type) evaluation rule is included among the evaluation rules of Unrelated replace. By using this evaluation rule, references of the same ID and type are automatically matched. Therefore, you can quickly replace a model with a copy of the same model or two otherwise unrelated models with the same entity IDs.
