Teamcity 4.5 - external change viewers

I'm playing with the external change viewers setup.   I'm actually finding it to be a little painful.    Shouldn't this be configurable through the web ui on the vcs page?

If i copy a project (and get a copy of the vcs root), will it need a new entry in in the change-viewers.properties file?

Ruel,
Sorry for the late response.

Yes, unfortunately right now you have to deal with the .properties file directly, no UI. Please fire a bug at http://jetbrains.net/tracker with some details what UI would be convenient for you.

Right now the answer 'yes' again: you have to specify all VCS roots manually to enable an external viewer extension for each of them (though sometimes the wildcards can ease your work). Please submit another bug, I think you can expect fixing this issue as well in next versions.

Are there any particular problems with change-viewers.properties configuration?


Thanks.
