Make a richer file system available for uploaded files.

When you use Client GUI to upload SCM files into a review, you get the source (SCM) file structure uploaded to a review’s Review Materials section.

 

However, when you use the Web UI to upload files (that are NOT in CM) to a review, you are limited to a ‘flat’ file system, where ALL your files are at the top level.   You can’t upload folders (or nested folders), and the Web UI doesn’t allow you to ‘create’ a folder to upload files into.   Drag-and-drop will also not recognize folders dragged into a review.  

 

We have several instances where this would be useful

 

  1. a) General nesting, where a folder structure will match the known development structure. As in:

 

Project

> Guidance

>> Algorithms.c

>> exec.c

> Nav

>> compensation.c

>> calc_V.c

>Include

>>comm.h

>>instruments.h

Documentation

>requirements.docx

>design.docx

 

  1. b) Test results, where we have several copies of the same file name, yet each is unique to where it lives. As in:

 

Test1

> input.txt

>results.txt

>script.tcl

Test2

> input.txt

>results.txt

>script.tcl
