Switching workspace to a branch from different repository should warn

Recommended Posts

There is a trap in Plastic, which should have a distinctive warning in my opinion:

When switching branch, Plastic asks: You are changing your workspace configuration. Continue? This confirmation looks the same both in case it is the same repository as the current one or a different one. Even though these two cases are quite different from the user point of view. I believe that switching to a different repository should have a specific (more expressive) warning. (Maybe the owl can explain what is going on.)

Several of my colleagues have run to this trap already. They switched they workspace to a different repository by mistake and they were super confused.


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open Repositories view
  2. Choose View branches or View Branch Explorer on a different repository than the one loaded in the current workspace
  3. Choose Switch workspace to this branch on any branch there.


I admit that it is more likely in our environment as we have two repositories with similar branches and we have a button in our custom issue tracker which opens Branches with an issue branch independently on the current workspace.
