StarTeam Feature Requests

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".
(thinking…)

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.

    This is being seriously considered for 16.2. Planning for the next release is about 1 month away (late April 2017). There’s been enough high votes for this functionality. It will take a lot of effort, but given the enormous support for this functionality we’re looking to see if it can be added to 16.2 (which is planned for Oct/Nov 2017).

  2. Blame feature

    SVN blame like feature using StarTeam Audit.

  4. Support Copying Project Access Rights in the Administration Tool

    I would to see a way to copy Access Rights from project to project, probably a feature within the Server Administration Tool. (But it could be in the CPC, too.)
    Or, alternately, it would be nice if project and view access rights could be tied to user groups globally instead of on a per-project basis. Perhaps the global settings would take effect always and the per-project would override the global settings, if that is still needed.

    In either case, one, central location for this kind of administration would be nice. And I'd like to see it in an administration tool…

  5. Using ViewEvent to see who modified a view's properties

    This is more of an SDK+server related request. It'd be nice to know who modifies view properties (eg, the view description, or the view gets renamed/deleted). The ViewEvent - viewChanged() method seems to trigger nicely on such changes, but contains no information regarding who did that change. Could such information be provided in future server+sdk releases?

  8. Better/easier initial installation and configuration

    As a newbie to StarTeam, I have had a heck of a time getting everything setup and configured. I figured it would take me a couple days but have spent the better part of two weeks trying to get things up and running correctly (still not all the way there yet). Have had to call support or post on the forum several times to figure out things that I would have thought would have been included up front in the install guide.

    Things like...
    The license server - you have to have it, where to get it, how to configure…

  11. Notification Agent Integration

    The current notification agent is a 32bit agent that runs against the workflow. But with our setup which has hundreds of projects and possibly thousands of views, we are not able to run the agent on all our projects due to memory issues. It would be nice to see the notification agent completely integrated into the ST Server.
