how to ignore folder content?

Eliah Ninyo (21113) | asked Mar 27 '16, 9:31 a.m.


i'm using RTC and i want to add to the jazzignore file a rule to ignore a specific filder but not its content.

for excluding a folder (including its content) the rule is simply {name_of_folder}. to exclude a file with suffix abc simply {*.abc}.

but how do i exclude a folder content and not the folder itself?

What you stated is a bit confusing. I will rephrase with common sense and hopefully that's what you want - you only want to add a folder itself, but not the contents that it contains, to source control.

If that's indeed the case, it should be quite easy - you just add a .jazzignore file in the specific folder and use the {*} filter. This way, all the files in this folder will be ignored.
