Connection settings not saved per solution
Posted 31 May 2018 - 07:00 PM
In the "Perforce - Connections" settings I have the "Connect to the server using solution-specific settings" option enabled. Previously I would have to set the connection settings once per solution, and it would auto connect on subsequent loads. Now, I am prompted with the Connection dialog on each load.
How do I get the plugin to remember my connection settings with out having to select them each time I open the solution?

A quick test here with that setting appears to connected automatically with the solution-specific settings when I:
1. Open Visual Studio 2017
2. Open solution from within Visual Studio
but I do see the Connection dialog when I open a solution from outside of Visual Studio (e.g. double-click on a .sln file in explorer).
Is that how you are opening the .sln?

I am double clicking on the .sln to open. When opening the .sln from inside VS, I am not prompted by the Connection dialog.
Is there an ETA on when the VS update will be released? Will this behavior go away with that update?

Unfortunately, this will not go away with that update. This is a side affect of changes to work with that update. I'll log a bug here and we'll investigate.
A potential workaround in the meantime may be to "Connect to the server using my Perforce environment settings". That seems to be working in my quick tests here. Though, if you are connecting with different workspaces for different solutions, you'd probably need to use a P4CONFIG setting.

The only other thing I can think of would be to rollback to 2018.1 (and uncheck Automatically update this extension in the extension manager)
You can get 2018.1 here: ftp://ftp.perforce.com/perforce/r18.1/bin.ntx86/
Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for reporting this.
