  1. Show labels in changesets view; or show changesets in labels view

    In "Changesets" tab it is possible to right click on a changeset and select "Label this changeset"
    However nowhere in this view can I see if there is a label against a changeset- there are columns for Changeset's Name, Comment, Date , branch et al but not even the "Show Extended Information" shows anything about labels.

    Why this would be useful:
    In my typical workflow I make changes as development proceeds with comments stating what & why things have been done; often with references to issue#s . For example "Fix issue#5341 the conblogminator was crashing with error E54 when the…

    • Finding changesets / reviews by name with wildcards (where like '%...')

      Please, add the possibility to use queries like this:
      find changesets where branch like 'release%' (to find changesets from branches release1, release2, releaseB,...) or this: find reviews where title like '%fail%' and so on.

      This feature is already available for changeset->comment, but not for changeset->branch or review->title.

      • Workspace-wide exclusive checkout

        Consider the following branches:
        1(root)
        1-1 (branch from 1)
        1-2 (another branch from 1)

        Currently, you can checkout and check-in the file on branch 1-1 and you can also do it on branch 1-2, as long as both checkouts are in their own branch head changeset and not at the same time.

        So when branches 1-1 and 1-2 merges back into the root branch 1, you get a conflict.

        The idea is to have types of files that cannot be merged, never, completely exclusive for all branches, the same way it is done in lock.conf for a per-branch basis.

        • Plugin for Webstorm IDE

          Support for VCS PlasticSCM under vcs roots and possibly Webstorms internal changelist, auto checkin and checkout support for editing files. Could be adapted easily from existing IntelliJ plugin to support Webstorm and PHPStorm?

          • Improve XLink conflict resolving in merge

            Imagine the following scenario:

            A repo with a XLink with a main branch and a child branch. Both branches have the same XLink.

            Now the following occurs:

            1) XLink is changed in both main branch and child branch
            2) You do a merge from main to child branch

            You'll get a conflict (which is expected). However, the "Source" and "Destination" values aren't very human readable in the GUI. I'm assuming they're the GUID's of the changeset or something similar.

            Could you make it more human readable? Displaying the associated changeset, branch etc?

              I'd like to see the changeset numbers in branch explorer in the same way they are shown in 2D version tree.

              • plastic.transformerrules suggestions

                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)

                  and make the button, which opens this window more noticeable (both in History and Changesets view), by adding a text label at least.

                    • Improve integration with JIRA

                      Develop a JIRA plugin for Jira, to improve visibility.
                      Add options to create branches from JIRA and issues from PlasticSCM.
                      Embed links to open each other Web Portal.

                      In general, a text box in the Jira issue is not enough. The interaction should be smooth.

                        • Group workspaces (and repositories)

                          I would like to see a way to group workspaces (and repositories) in order to make the list more readable.

                          As i use the model one workspace for a project or component, i got to many for a readable list.

                          Tagging them with a keyword and show them as a tree would make it easier to find workspaces.

                          • Code review per Branch compared with another Branch

                            Currently Plastic allows Code Review Per Branch. Problem is it shows differences between the original node from which the feature branch was created (in dev) and the head node of the feature branch.
                            However, this is a problem: when you update your feature branch merging updates other devs have merged in dev branch.
                            Why? Because all their changes also appear in the code review. So at this point is not possible to do a reasonable code review of the code in the feature branch.
                            The solution: Take the same approach that BitBucket takes. The code review should show only differences…

                            • Checkin comment and Code review text boxes (scrollbars, Ctrl+A)

                              A commit message text box and a code review text box does not have any scroll bar, does not allow scrolling with a mouse and does not allow Ctrl+A (select all text). All these things would be useful.

                              This suggestion has been added here already (https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/4341465-checkin-comment-and-code-review-text-boxes) but it was marked as completed even though it is still not working.

                              • Allow setting a color for each label, changeset and branch

                                It would be a nice feature to allow setting a color for elements.

                                Examples:
                                - set the label color red to mark it as "important".
                                - set the branch color to green to indicate that the branch is the "test branch"

                                • Improve the error popup window when "the parent revision is inconsistant"

                                  Currently, when Plastic sees a local file older than the one on the repo, it will be impossible to checkin. Moreover, it will tell you only for the first file it finds, so you have to try checkin again and fix each file individually as long as the error pops up.

                                  Solution : Show a list of all the conflicts, and for each file (why not also have a button to process all..), let the user choose which file he wants to keep.
                                  - Keep local file : checkin the local file ; overriding plastic warning.
                                  - Keep repo file…

                                  • list changed files in branch explorer properties

                                    It would be nice if there were a list of changed files for the selected changeset in the properties tab of branch explorer. This would be much quicker and more convenient than doing a diff changeset and facilitate general browsing. As panel width is limited, maybe only show the filename or put an elipsis at the start of the file path. There should be a context menu to diff the file.

                                        • add branch explorer menu to 'Branches' tab

                                          It would be useful to add the various 'Show selected branches ... in diagram' from the 'Branch Explorer' tab as a context menu to the table of branches on the 'Branches' tab.

                                          It can be hard to find the branches of interest in the explorer, but the filter for the table view makes this much easier. The table already helpfully maintains your current selections when you change its filter, so it is easy to build up the group you want.
