How to add new file types for Content Merger Selection?

Fullchee Zhang (113) | asked Nov 06 '20, 8:44 a.m.

I'm on Rational Team Concert version 6.0.6 on Ubuntu 18.04.

There are false positives when I try to merge LESS or CSS changes and it says that there's a conflict when there isn't.

There isn't an option for CSS or LESS. Is there a plugin that I can install?

Here's some screenshots since I don't enough rep to upload images here.

How is this file checked in as? i.e., what does the MIME type show up as for this file? If it is text/plain then the merge should have worked. If it is not text/plain, then do the following in the Eclipse client:
  1. Open Window > Preferences > General > Content Types.
  2. In the Content Types pane, select Text.
  3. Click the Add… button beside the File Associations pane.
  4. Enter the extension of the file type (*.css, *.less), and click OK.
  5. Click OK in the preferences dialog.

Is there any way to download a content type with custom logic?

For example, is there special logic when RTC merges Java source files vs other text files?
