typeinfo.dat not checking out with source control after updating to TC15.

Has anyone else been having issues with check-out and editing tests since upgrading to TC15? It seems that it no longer checks out the NameMapping\typeinfo.dat and so if we try to check in our changes we get access denied, then the execution plan gets wiped out.

 

If I pull up VS Source Control and check out that file (after checking out the rest from TC) then I can make edits and check them in just fine. It even checks in the TypeInfo.dat file.

I looked at the latest version and the version before that and I don't see typeinfo.dat in the list of files that are saved in version control

What version of TC were you using before version 15?

Re: typeinfo.dat not checking out with source control after updating to TC15.

After doing some more testing, this appears to have also been happening before TC15, we just didn't notice because we had not made changes to the name mappings for a little while. I just opened a test and created a new onscreen action and pointed at a random thing, then tried to check in. It is failing to check in because of this error:

Anyone have any thoughts on why our tests are failing to check in when we change name mappings? If typeinfo.dat is not part of Source Control, why is TC attempting to edit it when when change name mappings? Do we have something misconfigured?

Some files are meant to be local for the user, and are not in the source control list for that reason.  I am guessing that's why typeinfo.dat is not included.

 

As far as name mapping and source control go, my recommendation is to use the TC merge to combine your different name mapping files.  Test that amongst your users and make any adjustments needed, and then commit this master copy.  Don't rely on your source control to merge that file.
