Hi,

I am new at using perforce with my Unreal Engine 4 projects.

My first project works fine with Perforce.
Now I wanted to add a new second and totally different project.
So I created a new Workspace, but the changes in this new project continues the change numeration from my first project.

I hoped that both projects had their own separately numerations.

Is this possible?

Nice Greetings,
Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

From your post, I assume you are asking about changeless numbers.

Perforce changeless are server wide, each project does not get it's own change counter.

So if you submit changes 1, 2 and 3 in your first project, then create a new project and submit a change, this will be change 4.

Changeless numbers are not re-used, so if for some reason you end up deleting a change, the changeless numbers don't all change to
fill in this gap.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

Best,
Jen.

You'll get this behavior if you create an entirely new Perforce server instance.  Note that it'll be less admin overhead to just have everything in one instance (unless your projects are sufficiently large that you can't host both instances on one machine), so I'd recommend keeping things in just one server unless there's a more compelling reason to split them up than wanting the changelists for a new project to start at 1 for aesthetic reasons.  :)

Thx for your answers!
I am not sure how to create an entirely new Perforce server instance, but for now I can/will live with the enumeration as it is...

If you want to create multiple Windows instances, see "Installing Multiple Perforce Services for Windows"
