THIS FUNCTION IS DEPRECATED. It will be removed after 2016-11-30. Instructions for updating: Please switch to tf.summary.merge.

This op is deprecated. Please switch to tf.summary.merge, which has identical behavior.

This op creates a Summary protocol buffer that contains the union of all the values in the input summaries.

When the Op is run, it reports an InvalidArgument error if multiple values in the summaries to merge use the same tag.


  • inputs: A list of string Tensor objects containing serialized Summary protocol buffers.
  • collections: Optional list of graph collections keys. The new summary op is added to these collections. Defaults to [GraphKeys.SUMMARIES].
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A scalar Tensor of type string. The serialized Summary protocol buffer resulting from the merging.
