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.

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

  1. VS2010 plugin: add autocomplete and spellcheck to comments box on check-in.

    Autocomplete would work off list of types/files in the solution.

    • 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.

        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. :)

          • 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.

            • Show a list of files on "add tree to sc" action

              Show a list of all files before you add them to the source control. sometimes i need to keep a file back for some reason and add it some time later.
              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.

              • OAuth2.0 Authentication with Azure AD

                Azure Active Directory implementations offer an OAuth 2.0 Service endpoint for authorization. Being able to use this as an authentication option for the Plastic server could be a great addition to the product.

                • Possibility to choose jira task from checkin

                  When "Checkin changes to different branch" it would be nice if you could explore all jira task, instead of having to type the correct name.

                  • Make the version tree work in IntelliJ on the Mac

                    When you use the "Show Version Tree" command in IntelliJ on the Mac, you will get some weird error message about missing an xmodmap command. See also attached file. It would be nice if this command actually worked.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                              • Enable re-merging

                                A feature to enable the user to edit/re-merge a pending merge is something that would improve flexibility and greatly assist new users to the system.

                                If you accidentally do something wrong in the merge, or change your mind and want to do something differently, it would be great to "redo" either file or the entire merge, and let you change e.g. from workspace to source contributor, or go over a merge of some code without having to undo. Now, after you've done a merge you reach a point of no return.

                                  Have option to have to confirm a check-in operation.

                                  The use case is that because the refresh pending changes button and the check-in button are so close together, some users accidentally click the Checkin button when they mean to click the refresh.

                                  Some users would certainly find the extra confirmation annoying, so if implemented, this should definitely be an option controlled via Preferences.

                                    Hi, please change the comments seperator from "_" to something less frequently used. We have A LOT of files with a "_" in the file name and refering to them in a comment isn't that easy when "_" is the seperator ;)

                                    • Allow the pending changes view to ignore EOLs

                                      (see http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/2883-pending-changes-does-not-ignore-eols/)

                                      I would like an option to allow the Pending Changes view to ignore EOLs.

                                      Ideally this would happen automatically, so that if the option were enabled differences which are simply down to EOLs are not treated as pending changes.

                                      Another idea
