mariechristineb Posted October 27, 2022 Report Share Posted October 27, 2022 The new Plastic SCM web experience open beta is now live on the Unity Dashboard! Documentation is availablehere. Back in June, we put out a call for beta users for the new Plastic SCM web experience, which embedded powerful Version Control System (VCS) functionality directly within the Unity Dashboard. We’re very happy to report that we are opening this functionality to all Plastic SCM Cloud Edition users in the form of an open beta! You can now bring team members on board, manage user permissions, browse files and repositories, and navigate changes directly in Unity Dashboard. You can also add markdown files and embed images and GIFs! One of our top feature requests for Plastic SCM was for a rich code review experience on the web, for multiple reviewers, with the intent to merge. We are happy to announce this new code review experience is now available as of today!You will be able to see exactly what changes were made, when they were done, and by whom with the annotate and blame feature. You will also have the ability to sort changes by a date range, actions, color coding or labels. A simple click brings more detail and diffs the code.Here is a list of the Plastic SCM functionality you can now conduct out of the Unity Dashboard:OnboardingAdmins can now invite new users to an org, and add or adjust various permissions for that user at both the org and repository level, directly from the Unity dashboard. They can also view current Users and create or modify User Groups.Code ReviewThe Code Review tab in the Unity Dashboard shows all open Code Review tasks, including ones specifically assigned to you as a user. You can also use this tab to create a Code Review request, indicate what has changed, and even add multiple reviewers, who will immediately be notified of the new review. Reviews can be conducted in several different views, including a Full File View, which shows all lines of code and highlights what has changed, where, and when, a paired down view which ONLY displays what has changed, and even Side-by-Side and Tree Views that will be familiar to users of GitHub and GitLab. Monitor UsageAdmins can use the Dashboard to filter on specific timelines to track how repo size or active user count has changed. They can also gauge product engagement among their user base, tracking more granular usage statistics like the number of diffs, branches, merges, and code reviews.How to AccessThe new Plastic SCM web experience is now open to all users of Plastic SCM Cloud Edition. For new users, this functionality will be immediately available to you once you sign up for Plastic SCM Cloud Edition. Once signed into the Unity Dashboard, you will see the new tabs under the Plastic SCM Cloud Edition section of the DevOps tab. Note that if your Plastic SCM org is encrypted, you will not be able to view any of your files in the Unity Dashboard. If you’d like to visualize your files in the new experience, you will need to open a new Cloud org and reupload your data. Our support team can guide you through this process. We will be monitoring this thread closely, so feel free to share your experience and feedback with us here. Happy creating! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
