Vault Client doesn't recognise typescript files for merging properly.
Whenever I take latest for .ts files, client asks me to overwrite or do not overwrite/merge later. It doesn't intelligently recognises merging capabilities just like in other .cs files as such.

Is there a way around for this? Any plugins that I may install to get this sorted.

Version: Vault Standard 10

Hello,

Are .ts file type binary files? If so, Vault will detect this and they can't be properly merged.

Thanks,

Tonya

Hi @Tonya
I don't whether typescript files (.ts) are considered binary or not. They shouldn't be, I think. It's a open source language created by Microsoft. Should be taken care of just like .cs files.

How do I identify whether it's binary or not?

I did some research and it appears that some .ts files are binary (Video stream format used for storing video on a DVD) and some are text (A TS file is a text file that contains TypeScript code). If are you are using TypeScript code, then the files are likely text files. You may just need to add .ts file types as mergeable file types within the Vault Admin Client (in the Vault Admin Web Client select Admin - SourceControl Repositories - select the correct repository - under File Types add .ts to Mergeable Files).

Let me know if this doesn't resolve the problem.

Thanks,

Tonya
