Describe the problem you have.
as described in following POST ( Git Merge conflict com.kms.katalon.composer.testcase.properties - #23 by staniere ), files such as settings\internal\com.kms.katalon.composer.testcase.properties are frequently causing merge conflicts because there is a timestamped line which is always updated.
Apparently Katalon team suggest to put whole setting folder in .gitignore file.
but as said in the forum, i think lots of files of this folder should be versionned.
For example, I need to version the file com.katalon.plugin.report.properties in order to correctly configure plugins generation for jenkins and other member team folders correctly :
Content of “com.katalon.plugin.report.properties”
#Wed Oct 21 17:54:55 CEST 2020
this is not the only file which contains important configuration :
com.katalon.katalon-studio-smart-xpath.properties, com.kms.katalon.execution.webui.properties, com.kms.katalon.integration.analytics.properties, …
Please let us know, how would your work be affected while this request has not been resolved?
- I can continue my job, but my performance is lower than expected and I get annoyed at each git pull !
Describe the feature you’d like or how the current features need to be updated.
For me, timestamp should be removed from these properties files in order to be able to be git versionned without any merge conflicts
