  1. User right to prevent the deletion of other peoples "Shelves"

    There needs to be a user right that controls if a user or user group can delete other peoples "Shelves".

    As it could be possible to delete another person's shelf by accident, and there is no way of undoing that deletion. This would be especially important when the shelf itself contains a large number of changes which would take a while to redo.

    Deleting of your own shelf is OK.

    • add savety question before diff on main or other long branch

      Sometimes when I want to double click a changeset on branch /main I miss it and instead hit the branch itself. What then happens is: plastic isn't useable for 10 minutes because main has A LOT of changes.
      It would be nice if there was a "savfty" question when branches with a lot of changesets are diffed.

      • remove "from version control"

        Pending changes view DELETE menu, add option to "remove files from version control"

        IN Workspace explorer/files, Delete has two options, "delete files on disk" and "remove file(s) from version control".
        In Pending changes view, Delete will only delete on disk. However this is IMHO the more likely place you would discover files that are controlled but should be excluded!

        This thread should explain: http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1991-how-do-i-ignoreexclude-directories-that-have-already-been-checked-in/

        Windows GUI and gtkplastic 5.4.16.918

        [ I can't fully test exact behaviour right now because my server is offline at this moment installing updates. Lots of updates... ]

        • add a cherry pick without link option / or allow delete of cherry pick links

          It happens from time to time that you think you are working on some branch when actually you are on another.

          What I usually do in such a scenario is:
          1. check in on wrong branch.
          2. switch to correct branch.
          3. cherry pick from wrong to correct branch.
          4. copy the merged file(s)
          5. delete new change set created on correct branch created by cherrypick.
          6. copy the files back to the workspace (or just paste from clipboard if it was a single file).
          7. check in the changes (now properly set in the correct branch).
          8. delete the…

          • Fix the NPE in the IntelliJ plugin

            When you run the plastic wizard inside IntelliJ there is an NPE at the page where you can select your workspace. See also attached file. This should be fixed.

              • Shallow clone in GitServer

                Shallow clone in GitServer is currently unsupported. However it would be very useful for big repositories and CI systems.

                My scenario:
                I've got very big game repository and CI system, which supports git (but not plastic directly). To perform tests and builds for multiple platform, the CI agents store a lot of clones of repository, with huge, unnecessary history. The shallow copy mechanism seems to be ideal for such case.

                  diff view: Implement DRAG functionality on file paths of old and new files to be able to drag the files to another tool.

                  You have a copy to clipboard on right-click already so this is a trivial change for you.

                  Add another option to the right-click, or what-ever, to allow users to DRAG the old FILE (since you already have it in the tmp directory) to another application ( beyond compare, windows file explorer directory, etc).

                  Do the same for the new file side also.

                  This way users can set a diff of the files they want then EASILY get…

                  • States do Branches

                    It would be wonderful to have a feature where you can specify inside Plastic when a branch is ready to be merged and the task is done!

                    I'm trying to use the Task Per Branch and it's kind of annoying ask the others about the status of a task or a group of tasks.

                    Something like "change the branch's background color" to set it as a ended task.

                    You could expand this idea and integrate your own Task Management System. :)

                    • When managing multiple changelists, allow us to checkin with the changelist's name

                      When I'm managing several changelists I give them different names depending on the context. When checking in, I'd like to have the option of using the changelist name as the comment, instead of typing in the comment first and then choosing to check in the changelist.

                      e.g. - I might have the following:

                      Changelist: "Feature XYZ"
                      Changelist: "Spelling error"
                      Changelist: "DO NOT CHECKIN"

                      I'd like to check in "Feature XYZ" but not "Spelling error" (as it might be irrelevant to the feature changelist). I would like to:

                      1. Right click on "Feature XYZ" and select "Checkin Changelist"
                      2. A dialog…

                        • update the custom extension information in the options pane when a changeset is selected.

                          When different branches are selected, the custom extension task information is updated in the options pane. However, when changesets are selected, the pane doesn't update. It just leaves whatever information had been in there. Even if the changeset is on a different pane.

                            Also the add tree to sc action is very opaque. it doesn't even create a new changeset!!! i never know which files i realy added.

                                • diff and merge configuration panel help allows selection out of variables

                                  Right now the preferences for diff and merge for external tools has a help modal dialog that is difficult to work with. Building the command line is repetition of modify and click on the help to make sure things are being typed correctly.

                                  Suggest that instead it's a drop down dialog that populates the variable into the edit box as selected.

                                  • Better trigger support for CI

                                    The issue currently seems to be that triggers are "global" in nature. What we need is a simple way to trigger scripts based upon the repository or branch (ala Subversion hooks style). Simply putting a "trigger.conf" file in the repo would be good enough.

                                    Currently it's rather difficult to do something simple like trigger a specific job on Jenkins by committing to a repo, this is needed when you have 30 different projects with separate repositories all in progress at one time (and polling sucks).

                                    • Save and view Compares

                                      It would be great if I could save a compairing to a file and view it later again.

                                      Use case: I compaire to branches with a lot of changes. I will need some time to do this and want to do it later.

                                      Or: I want to show a compair/diff to somebody.

                                      • request for cm diff command option to be able to see path info for xlinks

                                        We need to be able to do a diff on a repository on a server (without workspaces) and then get the OLD version of a file through any xlink.

                                        cm diff OLD NEW

                                        You don’t get the path on the remote repository from a diff on current repository.

                                        If I do a cm diff in the first repository, There is NO path information through the xlink. And ALL the information is related to the NEW changeset.

                                        So you can not do a simple diff using the FIRST repository’s information:

                                        $ cm ls '/one/two/My link with spaces/bird/file1.txt' --tree='24@00000000_99_TEST_REPO_3a@myhost:8087' --format="{revid}"

                                        Can't resolve…

                                        • Unify buttons for toggling sidebar

                                          In Branch Explorer / 2D Version Tree, replace the "Options" toggle button with the same "Show extended information" icon button as in other views.

                                          Also, make the "Show extended information" icon button a "toggle button" in all views.
