  1. We have two JIRA servers. One for development and one for QA. We would benefit from being able to bind multiple JIRA servers and projects to a single repository.

  2. Please can you add support for 'not like' in cm find query language.

    Our example use case is to list all of a developers changes excluding any work in progress (wip).

    find changeset where comment not like '%wip%'

  3. In Jira integration settings (I mean Issue trackers settings in Plastic SCM) it is necessary to provide a Custom Field ID. After each checkin Plastic SCM appends a list of modified files to that field in an associated Jira's task. The problem is that it takes extra time after checkin, during which the GUI freezes even for a couple of seconds.

    On the other hand, when you don't provide the field ID, an error message is generated after each checkin.

    Could you please make the field optional, so that when no ID is specified, chekin info is not appended to…

  4. Please do not use fill-color to indicate the selected changeset/branch and the search results in Branch Explorer! Here's why:

    When using the fantastic feature of changeset and branch coloring (by user / replication-src and by conditional format), it becomes a mess trying to spot the additional altered-color of selection / search-result.

    I have earlier requested a way to change the (changeset / branch) border-color (independently for selection and search-result) into something more different than the current slightly altered gray shade. That would be a start, but I'd prefer to have also an even more eye-catching indication!

    Here are some suggestions:…

  5. When you close the pending tab you lose the comments. This can be done by accident or when you close the app.

    It would be great if the comments were preserve rather than lost.

  6. When you browse the historical changesets of a particular file in your workspace, the context menu only allows for "Open" and "Open with". It would be helpful to have the ability to "Save" the file to your local filesystem. I'm using macplastic.

  7. While the standalone Plastic SCM client on Windows works pretty well on high DPI screens, the Visual Studio extension is awful, not usable.

    Please add support for high DPI, since the Visual Studio extension is generally a very nice thing. Affects all Plastic SCM windows in Visual Studio.

  8. If a branch has multiple Code Reviews there is no way for the Before and After EditReview trigger to identify which code review is actually being edited. The current environment variables provide the new values and there is no way to determine what the old values were.
    This is important because (for example) we want to only allow certain users from changing the Review Status from Pending to Approved. Therefore we need to find the existing values for the review being edited.

    The suggestion is to add an environment variable (PLASTICREVIEWID) for the review ID being edited.

  9. The semanticexcluded.conf file can be used to control which file extensions are consider for Semantic Diff.

    Currently, this file only has an effect if it's put in %LocalAppData%/plastic4/.

    Just as for the ignored.conf file, for greater flexibility this file should work also when placed in:

    • Workspace (or repository) root.

    • Global config (rep:plastic-global-config, folder <repo>/workspacetree/

  10. We use the "Branch Explorer - Show selected and related branches in a new diagram" functionality very frequently. It's an awesome way to quickly focus on just the relevant parts of the branch tree. However, when restarting the GUI, all such custom Branch Explorer views are gone! It would be super nice if these custom views would survive a restart...

  11. When an issuetracker extension is active, the branch comments on ticket-branches are auto-populated from the associated ticket titles. Additionally, these branch comments are displayed (next to the branch names) in the Branch Explorer graph.

    This is very convenient, but I think there should be a "Display option" to always "display branch comment", not only for those that are coupled to a ticket and not only when using an issuetracker.

    This new option can be used for additional control over how (ticket and non-ticket) branch names are displayed (similar to the "Display full branch names" option).

    Actually, it would be both…

  12. Could you please bring back the previous/next item keyboard shortcuts that used to be available in branch diff and code review? They existed in Plastic SCM 5.4.16.663 (Yaguate), but they are no longer available in later releases. It is no longer that easy to move between files listed in the top pane.

    Now that they are unavailable, there is too much clicking. We can no longer perform code reviews as efficiently as we used to. It really matters when you perform many of them on a daily basis.

    Thank you in advance. We will be grateful.

  13. In the "Explore changesets on this branch" view, display also the author of each changeset in the list on the left. (Currently on display is cs-number, date, comment but not whodunnit... ;)

  14. UE4 Editor has source control built into it's editor similar to Unity. It would be great to be able to connect to Plastic since it's so useful for game development. It looks like a fairly straightforward plugin system (but a ways beyond my ability at the moment)

  17. macPlastic no longer lets you undo unchanged files - which seems to be a huge oversight - even Perforce lets you do that.

  18. In many cases when I merge branches, an xml documentation file happens to be one that needs user intervention (a manual merge). Because this file is automatically generated by Visual Studio, its content order is random. What's more, it is usually quite large and even several hundred sections in it may need user intervention.

    I don't actually care about the content of that file, because it will be automatically generated correctly when I rebuild the project after merging the branches. So I just click 'Save and exit' without changing anything.

    When I do that, the application asks me an extra…

  19. After editing a checkedout file in Visual Studio, open "Diff with previous". The changes can be edited. I found the "Save" button on top (hard to see...), but if you close the window before saving all changes are lost with no warning. I think that is a serious bug.

  20. Add a way to configure (at least be .conf file) for which file-extensions Semantic Diff will be activated.

    Since release 5.4.16.701 Semantic Diff will revert to text-based diff when it fails to parse a file, but it should be possible to disable it completely for some files (C++ .h headers for example) where the implementation is not yet complete (or simply because the user prefers a standard text-based diff).

    Implemented a mechanism to disable Semantic Diff for certain file extensions. A semanticexcluded.conf file can be placed inside the Plastic SCM configuration directory: HOMEPATH/AppData/Local/plastic4. This file will contain patterns to match the files to diff. Semantic diff will be disabled for files whose path matches any of those patterns.

    Example: Having the following semanticexcluded.conf file:

    *.h

    /src/core

    The semantic diff won’t be displayed for the following items (server path format):

    /lib/headers/core.h

    /kernel/kernel.h

    /src/core/main.cpp

    /src/core/modules/network.c
