.gitignore file

Hi,

We have a Bitbucket repository called "Automation-Tests" that has a sub-folder called "TestComplete" where we store the TestComplete tests. I think this is a common source control structure in a company as IT cannot create a repository for each test for each team.

Now, .gitignore in TestComplete v14.93 does not work in above source control. A support ticket sent to SmartBear a month ago, no solution yet. does someone has same situation?

PS, the .gitignore file is right under repository level, I can not change its path in Testcomplete.

    File .gitignore is usually in the root of your repository. You should not have to specify the file location.

      Great, the location of file .gitignore is anchored at least. My ticket helper let me try here and there....

      Thank you very much, rraghvani !

      So now next question, why the file .gitignore doesn't work in TestComplete v14.93?

      syntax: glob
      *.js.bak
      *.js.tcVis
      */Log/*
      *.sj.bak
      *.tcLS
      *.tcCfgExtender
      *.tcLogs

       

      tcCfgExtender file and logs show in commit popup all the time.

       

      Appreciate your any input here!

    I'm not sure what you mean by "why the file .gitignore doesn't work in TestComplete v14.93?"

     

    If the repository has the .gitignore, then when you perform a check-in, it will ignore those files mentioned in .gitignore.
