Here's a script we use. Tens/hundreds of times faster than reconcile in our case.
There's already a p4 clean (synonym for p4 reconcile -w) command, would this be adding it as an option to a specific context menu in p4v?
Hey, what happened to all the comments? People have been requesting this feature for years.
Perforce: "We listen to the community so we deleted all your votes and comments" http://www.perforce.com/blog/150714/ideas-wanted-new-improved-p4ideax-launched
Broken link to the old feature request http://www.p4ideax.com/ideas/434/add-a-clean-operation-to-p4-and-p4v if you can find a cached copy anywhere
Simply create a P4V custom tool (P4V Menu: Tools / Manage Custom Tools...) and configure as follow:
- Name: Clean (DeleteExtra & ForceSyncAltered Files)
- Add to applicable context menus
- Application: p4.exe
- Arguments: -p $p -u $u clean %D
- Run tool in terminal window
- Refresh P4V upon completion
- Ignore P4CONFIG Files
Yes, command p4 clean (from 2014.1+) is an alias to p4 reconcile -w (see p4 help clean or p4 help reconcile for more details. https://www.perforce.com/blog/140501/p4-clean-make-workspace-shine
Please add this to P4V, having to build our own plugins to do such a basic operation is absurd.
Of course, you can add a Custom Tool for that. But it's just a nightmare to ask hundreds of users to set it, or to negotiate a deployment of that on some machines, for users potentially working on various projects, with various constraints.
'Custom Tool' is a very limited workaround, nice for a small teams or dev teams. For big teams, with various profiles (artists, document writters, geeks, etc), it's just impossible
I think it is a shame Perforce only care about sales and cannot add a simple feature request.
P4V is such a shambles, modal dialogs that appear in the background so you don't know when a long task is finished and my favourite "Step 3/2"
2 yrs and still not implemented....
