  1. Just like the "advanced merge to", allow the user to cherry pick to any branch.

    This allow the user to avoid switching to the branch he want to cherry pick to, which can be very time consuming (reimporting workspace in a game engine for exemple).

    Yes, you can do it from the CLI, but you need to enable the server-side merge functionality.

    The client and the server version must be 7.0.16.2077 or newer. You also need to enable the server-side merge functionality (in-preview) adding the following setting on the client.conf. Check how to do it on the release notes: https://www.plasticscm.com/download/releasenotes/7.0.16.2077

    After that, you will be able to perform a cherrypick using the merge-to. Example:
    cm m br:/main/task —to=br:/main —cherrypicking —merge -c=“merge-to cherrypick example”

    Best regards

  2. Currently only the user name and the date can be selected as templates for custom checkin comments.
    As some build servers (such as bamboo) look into the comments when determining changes it would be nice to have at least the branch name as a template. This should be the branch prefix which is given when creating the branch + its name.

  3. The latest Bamboo version is 5.6.1 and there currently seems to be support for version 4 only.
    Plastic should support the latest version as it is a severe drawback not to be able to work with the existing build server.

  5. It would be very useful to see the current branch name in the Visual Studio title and therefore in the taskbar too.
    I am aware of a "Workspace working info" view but it does not help much to find a proper window quickly when I have opened multiple versions (branches) of one solution.

  7. It'd be nice if you could add a couple of extra features to plastic.transformerrules:

    • wildcards (for example: rm /data/*.psd
    • space handling: rm "/data/dir with spaces/hugefile.bin"
    • handle missing files (as far as I know it stops the update process now)

  8. In the gui, if you create a new workspace and then update it, it is impossible to select a different workspace tab until the update is complete.

  9. While Plastic SCM does allow CA wildcard SSL certificates to be used, and all communication is secure, when first launching the application a dialog pops up with the following :-


    WARNING: the hostname provided in the server certificate doesn't match the server's hostname. This means that the certificate was not issued to this hostname or that there is a network configuration problem with this host.

    • Certificate hostname: CN=*.domain.com
    • Server hostname: CN=host.domain.com

    If you want to continue connecting to this host, choose 'Yes'. The certificate validation will continue (not recommended).
    If you want to abandon the connection, choose 'No' (recommended).


    As…

  10. When I try to solve a more complex merge I often want to see a diff between an ancestor and a source or between a source and a destination. I know that the merge tool theoretically shows all those diffs at once, but it is not so legible. It would be nice to hide one of the file temporarily and see clean diff between the remaining two only. Or at least open those simple diffs from a context menu in a merge tool, as I can from an "items to merge" list.

  12. Add better context menu for files when diffing changesets. Especially open or diff in external tools and history is needed.
    Diffing pictures inside this window would be great too.

  13. It would be handy to have a toolbar with all the Plastic views/commands inside of Visual Studio, similar to the "Source Control - Team Foundation". Likely this would have the same buttons as the View -> Plastic SCM menu, but could include other shortcuts.

    The View -> Plastic SCM menu is a bit obscure and hard to find.

  14. 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.

  15. The direction of arrows from child to parent is confusing a bit for us. I suggest you add an option to turn the direction of these arrows optionally.
    (Add the option to branchexplorer.cfg, similar to display.options.dag_mergelinks=true)

    Available now in Plastic SCM 4.1.10.443!

    A new configuration option has been added to display the changeset
    arrows in the Branch Explorer from parent to children (instead of the
    opposite, which is the default behaviour). In order to use it the user
    must add the following line in the branchexplorer.cfg file:

    display.options.show_parent_to_child_arrows=true
  16. Sometimes it would be useful to pick out a file in an old revision. What I want is to go to Browse repository on this changeset, select a file, click on Save as (in a context menu), find a destination on a filesystem and save a copy of that file there.

  17. Would be really nice to be able to just right-click on a file in the Item list view on the Pending Changes screen and select an option to "Undo pending changes"...as opposed to the way the system currently forces you to undo changes, which is to "check" the file(s) you want to undo changes for, and then click the "Undo changes" button on the toolbar.

  18. When diffing revisions set the revision from the older changeset as a source and the revision from the newer changeset as a destination independently on the revision sorting in the History view.

  19. Several times now I have checked in a change set missing one or two changes because I failed to click the Refresh button first. It would be nice to have an option to automatically refresh the list when the window is activated (such as how VS does it when it detects an opened file has changed on disk) or when the user switches back to the tab.

    Refresh speed does not seem to be an issue for us, but if it is for some people having this as an option would be fine. At the very least having the option…

  20. Sometimes when you modify a file and then rename it, Plastic SCM is unable to match the original file with the renamed one. In that case you can use the ‘Search matches’ tool to select the file that matches the original one. However, It is not always possible, because the minimum similarity level that you can set when searching is 50%.

    Imagine you add a comment to a small file that contains only a definition of an enumerable and then rename the file. Because it is small, the comment becomes a major part of the file and the similarity to…

    Hello,

    we have changed the Search Matches form to remove the minimum similarity level. Moreover, we have changed the matching algorithm so that changes in indentation are not taken into account.

    These new features can be found since version 5.0.44.566 of PlasticSCM.
