  1. Server authentication configuration in LDAP mode should allow for LDAP queries

    Support for LDAP queries (including OR operator) that would allow better specificity in configuring access control to repo server.

    • export item revision

      When browsing a branch or changeset for items it sometimes would be nice to save a file/folder to some place on the disk.

      Some files belong together and if I want to view or even execute these files I need all of them with correct filenames in the same place.

      Clicking on a item in plastic opens this file with the system standard viewer in a temporary directory. Depending on the file this may not be a good idea! Therefore I need a way to select some items (files/folders) and export them.

      • Reuse the "Explain Merge" view for existing changesets

        The "Explain Merge" functionality is currently only available while performing a merge, and not in retrospect when looking at an existing changeset containing one or more merges.

        I suggest adding this functionality to the "Diff changeset" view as well. it could be activated by context menu on a "Merged from ..." changelist header.

        • 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.

          • 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

            • 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.

                    • Inform user that pending changes have not been refreshed when Checkin button pressed.

                      Occasionally I forget to refresh the pending changes view before a Checkin. This is annoying as immediately after the checkin operation then view automatically refreshes, sometimes revealing changes that missed the checkin!

                        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.

                                  • 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.

                                        • 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.
