  1. Jira integration - make Custom Field ID optional

    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…

    • improve merge algorithm for additional lines

      Automatic merge fails in the following situation:

      For a particular source code line on separate branches:

      1) add a new line before or after it
      2) modify the line

      When rebasing one of the branches from the other this fails, apparently because the new line is grouped with the other in the diff tool. If they were considered separately it should be a trivial automatic merge.

      An alternative would be to make the manual resolution easier by providing a mechanism to split the merge block so each line can be selected separately (source/base/dest). I think xxdiff has this capability. Currently…

      • Add CLI command to replace existing checkin-comment

        Via GUI it's possible to edit existing checkin-comments and save them.

        In the CLI (cm command line) there is no equivalent to this action. There should be a command to replace the comment of a specified changeset.

        That way we could apply batch pattern-replacement in checkin comments, similar to "git filter-branch --msg-filter". This is not about rewriting history, as only the comments will be modified.

        An example of where this is useful: after import from SVN via Git each changeset has got an appended formatted string, starting with "git-svn-id:" and containing info about the corresponding branch and revision in the…

        • Make semanticexcluded.conf file work from wkspace and global config as well

          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/

          • use windows taskbar api

            It is possible to show a progressbar within the windows taskbar.
            It would be nice if you could implement this for all progressbars within plastic. For example check-ins or workspace updates.
            This would mean I can minimize plastic for this time to work on someting else and still be able to see the progress.

            This is what I mean: https://funkjedi.com/w/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/windows7-toolbar.jpg

            You would need to use this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd391692(v=vs.85).aspx

            I've already send Carlos an C# sample file for the implementation ;)

            • High DPI Support for Plastic SCM Visual Studio Extension

              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.

              • add an option to save a file from the history screen

                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.

                • Allow user to change workspace tabs during an update operation

                  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.

                    • Branch Explorer: make selection and search results more visible!

                      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: …

                      • Create a master conditional format that can be pushed from the server to all users

                        Each user in our organization has to set up their own conditional format rules. We would like it if there was a way to set this up once, and push it to all of the other users.

                        • Add SSL wildcard certificate support

                          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).

                            Please change the "Server:" textbox into a dropdown, containing the most recent servers used, or the server profiles we have setup, or both!

                            We should not have to enter the full server URL every time we need to switch servers, it becomes really cumbersome! Also, the effort spent on adding server profiles in Preferences is a bit wasted if it's not usable in all places like this one...

                            • Create a better (modern) looking GUI

                              It would be cool, if you pimp up the PlasticSCM Client, so that it has a modern fresh look.
                              The main reason for that suggestion is: On screen resolutions with a DPI higher than 100%, the font becomes really blurry. (on MS Windows)
                              Microsoft invented better frameworks to solve that issue (WPF, UWP).

                              But please, be aware that it should be a mid-term to long-term goal. I know, you could not easily replace the old GUI with a completely new modern GUI. ;-)

                              The current GUI works good so far, but it looks and feels a bit outdated.

                                • Jenkins PlasticSCM Plugin update to support pipelines

                                  We are using PlasticSCM because we have large amounts of binary data which Git can not handle. This prevents us from using the Git clients which support Jenkiins Pipeline.

                                  Please update the PlasticSCM plugin to support Jenkins Pipelines.

                                  • Make Diff a default action in File History (table and graph)

                                    I found myself many times to mistakenly open a revision of a file instead of showing a diff, when clicking on a changeset in a History or a History Graph of a file (not in a history of a directory or the overall history = Changesets / Branch Explorer). I think it would be more consistent to open always diffs by default.

                                    • Allow client triggers to be run from a workspace

                                      Say you put them in a "triggers" folder, you would simply register them using a parameter, e.g

                                      cm mktr before-clientcheckin "bob" "$workspace\triggers\checkin.py"

                                      The $workspace would be substitued by whichever workspace caused the trigger to fire. The only exception to this would be "before-mkworkspace", since the trigger would be inaccessible.

                                      • TeamCity plugin: support agent-side VCS checkout mode

                                        Currently, the Plastic plugin for TeamCity (Continuous Integration) only supports server-side checkout mode.

                                        This means the workspace resides on the server and after updating the workspace its contents are copied to the build agent(s). Thus, the agent does not have a complete workspace, only a copy, which means that Plastic commands can not be run in this copy on the agent.

                                        More specifically, it is not possible to ask questions about the current changeset or workspace status on the agent. (Our build process assumes that the build is done inside a Plastic workspace.)

                                        Could you please considere supporting the TeamCity…

                                        • Restore the previous/next item keyboard shortcut in branch diff and code review

                                          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.
