I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Reply in Code Review

    Sort comments in a Code review according to files and lines to which they are connected to and then according to a timestamp of a last edit instead of sorting it according to a timestamp of a last edit only.
    Ideally indent comments to the same line and add a Reply button too.

  2. Possibility to merge independently added files/directories

    Two folders (or files) with the same name added into different branches independently, cannot be merged in Plastic now.
    It would be priceless in some cases (especially for folders).

  3. Customizable columns

    Make possible to select visible columns in table views such as Changesets, Items, Branches, etc.
    We want to see Attributes and Labels in a Changesets view, but we usually do not care about GUIDs.

  5. Commenting xlink changes in code review

    "Xlink changes cannot be commented" - that message shows up when you try to comment a change in an xlinked file (in a code review). IMHO it would be much easier if xlinked files could be commented just like other files.

  6. File "branching" to allow new file to track inheritance from previous file

    In Perforce, you can branch an individual file to a new name, in a sense copying it - including history.
    This allows future trackback of changes through the file all the way to original files.

    Use case:
    Re-factor of source file to separate into multiple files.

  8. Lock a Branch

    LOCK a branch so no one can perform a merge or checkin except the one who took the lock.

    Current scenario: Two or more developers are are working on child branches and want to merge back to the parent branch, if both initiate the merge, the first will succeed but the second will have to re-merge again. To avoid this, the developers can send an email, asking all to wait until he finishes the merge...
    Proposed solution: Allow the one to take a lock on the target branch, do the work, and release it. During the lock, others should be…

  10. If a changeset is deleted, switch to the parent changeset and KEEP the changes in the "pending changes"

    When a changeset is removed the workspace is switching to the parent changeset and all changes get lost.
    I think it is better to keep all changes in the "pending changes", so you do not lose any changes and you can add some more changes.

    It often happens to me that I forget some small changes, so I have to check in again producing a lot of unnecessary changesets.

  11. Annotate this line

    Usually, I don't need annotation of a whole file (which is really slow for big files); an annotation of a specific line or maybe several lines would be enough.
    New context menu command Annotate this line from Diff/Merge tool would be very helpful.

  12. Comments carry over from branch when merging.

    I find myself repeatedly typing in a lot of the same comments. I would like to auto populate the the commit comment with what was used to create the branch.

  15. Improve usability of the embedded code review system

    The code review system is very basic but I believe a few simple things can make it much more usable. I submit a list of them here: http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/2276-suggestions-for-code-review-system

  16. Show changeset numbers in branch explorer

    I'd like to see the changeset numbers in branch explorer in the same way they are shown in 2D version tree.

  17. Workspace-wide exclusive checkout

    Consider the following branches:
    1(root)
    1-1 (branch from 1)
    1-2 (another branch from 1)

    Currently, you can checkout and check-in the file on branch 1-1 and you can also do it on branch 1-2, as long as both checkouts are in their own branch head changeset and not at the same time.

    So when branches 1-1 and 1-2 merges back into the root branch 1, you get a conflict.

    The idea is to have types of files that cannot be merged, never, completely exclusive for all branches, the same way it is done in lock.conf for a per-branch basis.

  18. Optimize Annotate

    Annotate for bigger files with long history is very slow and even stops with error. A performance optimization would be much appreciated. Annotation of just a part of a file (https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/3533001-annotate-this-line) is one option, some caching is maybe another way, how to deal with that.

  19. Make more views openable by command line flags and Plastic:// URLs

    As mentioned in the following links, the changeset / branch Diff view from the Plastic GUI can be automatically opened to show a specified changeset or branch. This can be done either via command line / script or (on Windows) by a URL containing a special "Plastic://" protocol:

    http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/3061-updated-plastic-urls-to-launch-diff-windows/

    http://codicesoftware.blogspot.com/2012/11/plastic-scm-4110372-release-is-out.html

    This is very handy for automation etc. However, I'd like to see more views available via command line and URL args - Branch Explorer, 2D History, Items, Annotate etc...

  20. Advanced LDAP Support

    Plastic currently only supports basic LDAP integration.

    In real-world scenarios, things aren't as clear cut and simple.
    I propose extending LDAP support in the following ways:

    1. Support secure LDAP (LDAPs). Including self-signed certificates on the LDAPs server.
    2. Ability to specify Root DN.
    3. Ability to specify User search Base.
    4. Ability to specify User search filter (ie, something like sAMAccountName={0}).
    5. Ability to Specify Group Search Base.
    6. Ability to Specify Group Search Filter ((& (cn={0}) (objectclass=group) ))
    7. Group Membership definitions (can optimize with memberOf property).
    8. Configurable Local Caching of credentials, TTL etc ....
