Create Dev Branch using Branch white list feature - not working

I am trying to use Branch white list feature as mentioned here in Git

All I want to do is create a Dev branch for ClientC that contain source code only for ClientC, which is what it says in above link

 

Talend Administration Center allows you to filter the project on the defined SVN/Git branches or tags in order to reduce the use of disk resources and improve performances.

 

I created Dev branch as ‘DevClientC’ from master branch as above using Branch Management however when I look at the source code under branch DevClientC, I can still see project folder for ClientA also & that is what we dont want.

 

Basically I am trying to overcome limitation that is mentioned here

A branch created for a specific project will be available for all others projects in the same Git repository.

Re: Create Dev Branch using Branch white list feature - not working

meanwhile I have already followed this guideline as below & active_git_branches.csv file looks good on server & still I see source code being copied for other projects in dev branch.

To create a Git or SVN Branch white list

Talend Administration Center allows you to filter the project on the defined SVN/Git branches or tags in order to reduce the use of disk resources and improve performances.

Prerequisites:

  1. Open the whitelist configuration file to edit it (active_svn_branches.csv for SVN projects or active_git_branches.csv for Git projects). You can see the list of all branches of your projects.

  2. Remove the lines corresponding to the branches on which you do not work in order to keep only the necessary ones and save your changes. The project is now filtered on the branches you have chosen to keep.

Can anyone respond to this? We really want Branch white list feature to work.

@xdshi Could you please help us with this issue? we want to use whitelist feature as mentioned by Talend 'to filter projects & have source code only for the filtered project in given branch'

 

I would really appreciate your response on this.

 

Thanks,

@nmodi we can check if we will be able to use the input from the whitelist to help trim the pull request to use the git sparse checkout instead (see https://git-scm.com/docs/git-read-tree/ at the end of the page).

 

Even if we implement it, it will not address your security concern though since there are not branch permissions for developers.

Thanks @tsteinborn for your response,

I realize that whitelist feature only works on specific branch hence correct implementation should fix one issue. we are controlling branch level permission at git level.

so combination of both resolution should address security concern everyone can possibly have on talend.

Thanks,
