We have couple of symbolic links to directories in our perforce depot.
Those links are created on the client correctly and show symbolic link folders in Windows explorer and correct view in P4V client.
But if we run reconcile on the folder above we see those items shown as edited items.
We have tried to use .p4ignore.txt but this seems to have no effect on symlink files.
We have a folder structure like
- - Common
- - Client
- - Other
where Common is a symlink folder to other location.
We have created .p4ignore.txt with following content:
# Symbolic links [as are always updated with the content]
Commonin folder src above.
But the folder is still shown as being changed in reconcile.
We have tried different permutations:
but without any success.
What would be the correct syntax in .p4ingore.txt to ignore the changes due to symlink folder created on the disk compared to depot structure.
