  1. We are a large corporation with an LDAP (Active Directory) with 10's of 1000's of entries in the LDAP/AD server.
    Today, I think one of the biggest performance issues with Plastic SCM is the VERY large number of requests to LDAP to lookup SID to be able to display uid. Finding a way to speed up this operation would, I believe, be a boost to performance in many operations in Plastic SCM (especially the GUI?). Item view, changeset properties, and annotate history would improve just to name a few.
    I first thought of this problem when asking myself why the…

  2. On the workspaces tab, next to "Create new workspace..." a button "Add existing workspace" would be amazing.

    Use case: I recently received a new laptop and all of my working files were copied from my old laptop including a folder containing numerous workspaces that are >10gb each, I needed to work on some of these projects while out of the office but couldn't find an easy way to add them back in to Plastic and recreating/downloading them from scratch while remote wasn't an option.

  3. At the bottom the Plastic SCM full GUI there is a blue badge with a button "Email support" and some promotional text "Need help? We normally answer in less than 1 hour!" Although Plastic's support is indeed excellent and people should know about it, I believe such a message is much better implemented as a tip or notification that can be toggled off.

    My team feels the badge draws a lot of attention with its bright blue color and wastes screen real estate since we know about how to contact support.

    I believe it would make more sense to add…

  4. Currently the option is instead of timestamps. It would be faster just to check the contents if the timestamps don't match (unless it already does and this is just a labelling issue).

  6. I am aware of PLASTICREVIEWCOMMENT and PLASTICREVIEWCOMMENT_ACTION events which seem handy for people who self-host. For us cloud-based folks, though, I don't believe there is any ability to even set up webhooks against these events.

    Right now all my devops scripts for tracking code review (mostly to publish changes to our team's discord) make use of 'cm find review ...'. However, I can't figure out any way to access the actual comments associated with a review so the only useful changes I can track are changes in status and assignee.

    Could you please add a feature…

  7. Searching in Visual Studio allows me to set multiple search terms separated by a space in order to better narrow my results. This is helpful if you aren't sure if the name of the file is "ProjectXMLData" or "ProjectDataXML", but you know for sure it has Project and XML in the name.

    Attached Images
    - VSSearch01 - Shows searching for all 'project'
    - VSSearch02 - Shows adding 'xml', but not as an exact match. The results are still displayed as expected
    - WSSearch01 - Shows searching for 'project' and results show as expected

  8. For security purposes, it would be nice to be able to have extra security when logging in or to verify who has access to the repository. Something similar to what Bitbucket or Github Implement would be nice.

  10. If you use a console based diff tool such as vimdiff it can cause the GUI problems. It would be nice to be able to set different difftool preferences for the GUI and 'cm diff', possibly with a command line option:

    cm diff --tool=vimdiff

    It might be necessary to give tools names or id's in the GUI preferences to reference from the command line so you can easily configure the arguments.

  11. I'd like to be able to split existing changesets, similar to what is possible with 'git rebase'.
    Mostly this is useful for preparation for cherry-picking some functionality that is needed on more than one branch.
    I'm not suggesting that you necessarily inflict something as complexed as 'git rebase' in plastic.

    Instead it might take the form of:

    A. Do a subtractive merge of the commit I want to split. Allow me to then re-merge the subtractively merged commit, without generating any merge links, over the current changeset (or maybe invent some kind of new merge link that visually indicates this…

  12. 1) highlight the current file revision in the history list GUI & command line as selected by the workspace (I had a feeling it was bold but isn't in 5.0.44.581). If the workspace revision is modified, the parent should still be highlighted.
    2) give an indication of which revisions have been merged in the history list (eg. a column for number of branches seeing this revision; merged yes/no)
    3) populate the 'Properties' panel when selecting items in the 'Version tree' (it is blank regardless of which branch or cs I select, and many of the cs numbers and names on…

  13. When viewing the "Pending Changes" in Visual Studio plugin, double clicking a 'changed' item opens the 'Diff view'.

    I think that when you double click a file it should open the file editor. This will make the behavior more consistent with Visual Studio in general and with the behavior of double clicking an 'added file'...

    It will also make it more consistent with the behavior of other source controls, making the transition to Plastic even smoother.

  14. One big feature of SCM is to hunt down where / when a bug is introduced. It is done through a bisect feature:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisection_(software_engineering)

    Maybe PlasticSCM should implement the feature as well?

  15. I believe there is a similar feature to refresh the diff window if it's open in the Pending Changes view. It would be nice if there was a refresh button/key inside of the Diff tool itself as well when it is already open in its own window. Having it refresh from the Pending Changes window will help a lot though if this is already working.

  16. I'd like an alternative to date filters, so that views will not be empty by default if I look at a branch or a repo that has been is inactive for more than 3 months. I'd rather have a setting "Show 100(+/-) changesets". Sometimes you want to look at a certain time period, but I think more commonly you just want to limit the sheer amount of data being displayed?

    This might need an addition to the "cm find" query language, to specify "the N latest changesets" etc, similar to SQL "SELECT TOP(N) ... ORDER BY ..."?

    Also, an empty…

  17. Right now I have no way to define custom rules for only one repository.
    Also it is not possible to identify the repository within the rules condition.

    Workaround: add a attribute to each branch containing the repository name. (Very very nasty)

    It would be nice to:
    1) have a repostoryName variable within conditions
    2) have custom rules for only one repository

  19. Application will close if you press escape while it's out of focus. This is annoying if you do some back and forth between semantic merge and another application while doing you diff.

  20. It would be nice to be able to see diffs of selected changesets in the Branch Explorer and Changesets views. I imagine it being a toggle (like the current 'navigator', 'legend' etc. buttons), which opens a panel which just shows the changes included with whatever changeset is selected.

    I used this kind of thing a lot whilst using git, through gitk, which roughly consists of 3 panels; the list of commits, the list of files within the selected commit, and the changes within the selected file.

    There is another suggestion open on UserVoice for including a list of changed files…
