Question:

How do you prevent certain type of files being checked-in into StarTeam?


Answer:

Excluding certain type of files like *.sql or *.exe from a folder helps you to prevent check-in into the project. However, excluding files like this is done on a per-folder basis, and not at project level.

To exclude files from a folder:

Select a folder from the application folder hierarchy.

Select "Folder | Properties" from the Folder menu. The Folder Properties dialog opens.

Select the Exclude tab. The Exclude tab does not affect files that are already part of the project.

Select one of the following:

Inherit and use local exclude lists button to exclude files that match the exclude list specifications set for this folder as well as those of its parent folder. If the Local exclude list text box does not yet include any file specifications, add them.

Use local exclude list to exclude files that match the exclude list specifications set for this folder. If the Local exclude list text box does not yet include any file specifications, add them.
Click OK

Please note that exclude lists can be inherited from parent folders. Hence you need not set file exclude list again in child folders. Also it affects all the users of StarTeam and not just that user who did it.
