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.

  1. Show current (inherited) access rights

    Currently there is no simple way to see which access rights are valid for a single file or folder.
    You just see that there is nothing set at this file/folder.

    How about show inherited rights as (non changeable gray text/items) in the mask?

    So 'Advanced->Acces rights ...' would show the current state (black for set here and gray for inherited).
    This would help a lot on finding problems, like I can't do this or that.

  2. Let ST alert you when you check in certain filetypes against certain CRs

    Are there certain filetypes that shouldn't be checked in against a certain CR? For example a CR that should not have sql files.

    It'd be nice to be able to define these so that we could have an alert when a developer checks in a "bad" file. Let them do it but give an alert so that they can cancel.

    We have already started on StarTeam 16.1. As of now, we wouldn’t be able to add it to 16.1 without taking something away that has already been committed. Should anything change, we’ll consider it. Otherwise, I have it on the roadmap for the next release following 16.1

  3. 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.

  4. provide better Change Package support

    I'd like a single "Commit change package" button within your GUI that automatically browses the working folder, automatically adding modified files, also easily allowing the user to tailor the change-package to include removed-files (ie, mark them as 'deleted'), new files (ie, mark them as 'Added'). Automatically detect if a file has been moved/renamed by comparing the checksums and mark such items as 'Moved' or 'Renamed'.

  6. STCMD CO switch to pass in a list of CRs.

    STCMD CO switch to pass in a list of CRs. It should checkout the latest revision of any file linked to one or more CRs multiple times. An optional parameter to have Starteam generate a rev label to attach to the CRs and Files.

  7. Integrated User Management System and Belise

    Create a integrate User Management System that enables centralized user management for Caliber, StarTeam and SilkCentral.
    In addition, it would be nice that it could manage Belise license distribution/association.
    And that it replaced StarTeam LDAP QuickStart Manager.
    In addition, it would be nice if it´s interface were web based.

  8. VCM should check to see if any items participating in the session commit have already been changed before the VCM commit is started

    Before the start of a vcm commit, vcm should check to see if any files(items) participating in the session commit have already been changed

  11. Allow personalised dashboards on to the Home/Welcome page in StarTeam Agile so we can view all our tasks irrespective of projects/sprints

    For "shared resources" who could potentially be working on multiple projects at any point in time, it would be really useful to have a personalised dashboard on the Home/Welcome page, which gives a high level overview/list of all tasks currently assigned to that user irrespective of project and sprint.

  12. Provide More Granular Replace/Append Text in File Compare Tool

    When there is a block of lines that are different (new, deleted, modified, etc.) in the File Compare Tool, the Delete, Replace, and Append text buttons will do that option for the entire block that is different. It would be nice if you could highlight a subset of those lines and then have the action button apply this to only those highlighted lines. (If nothing highlighted, then action would be as today.)

  13. Integrate Topics (Discussion) to other configuration Items

    Integrate Topics (Discussion) to other configuration Items:
    -Like replacing the comments tab for a discussion tab and leaving the comment to a popup dialog that is shown olny when saving changes to the configuration item (specially change requests and tasks).

    doing some cleanup with older untouched requests like this one. I’d like to consider it for a future release however i need more information on the kind of behavior you’re looking for. can you help me understand the use-case(s) you have where this request would help you and your team? Thanks.

  14. Baseline Estimates in StarTeam Agile to Manage Sprints

    As it right now Agile works well enough to plan a sprint by assigning story points and determining which stories can be accomplished. However, the ability of the developers to change the story point estimates and task estimates makes it difficult to figure out how well the team is doing against their estimate. It would be good to be able to save a baseline at the beginning of the sprint.

  15. Enhance Document Overview Colors in File Compare Merge Tool

    In the File Compare Merge tool, the area between the scroll bar and the window frame shows an overview of the comparison results. However, the area is too narrow and the colors are too light (too washed out) to make the feature very useful. Please widen the area and either darken the colors or darken the background to increase contrast.

    Additionally, I'd also like to be able to click on the colors to go directly to the related change.

    Both of these are similar to how Eclipse handles Annotations in the Overview Ruler of an edit, for example.

  16. 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?

    A related forum post can be found here:

  17. 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…

  18. Ability to control checkin at a folder level

    Ability to limit who can checkin changes at a folder level and at a branch view level.

    The set of people may be different or a subset from the global set for a project.

    So maintainers can checkin changes to a branch view but not into the development tip.

    You may also want to restrict changes on a set of folders.

  20. Add Warning Message Capability to Results

    When a script is ran, I'd like to be able create checks that output results as Pass, Fail, or Warning. The "Warning" option allows me to prioritize viewing results. If the script outputs Failure, then it is something I have to review immediately. But if I can output warnings, then I'll be able to prioritize and review when time permits.
