uDeploy AccuRev Plugin Change Request

When importing artifacts using AccuRev plugin, Users see all file timestamps are changed to current date and time at uDeploy Website.

We are requesting to add the option of keeping original file timestamp in this plugin. The original timestamp means the timestamp associated with an artifact when it is uploaded to AccuRev system.

Importing artifacts mainly takes two steps:
1) AccuRev plugin retrieves artifacts using AccuRev CLI to the storage used by UCDAgent
2) UCD Agent uses "CreateVersion" and "AddFilesToVersion" UCD APIs to add artifacts to UCD Code station.

We have performed following tests related to these 2 steps. They gave us the inside of where timestamp changes take place.
1) This test was done on the UCD server. The UCD agent for version import is also installed on this UCD server. We set environment variable ACCUREV_MOD_TIME=1. According to AccuRev online doc, this setting will prevent timestamp change.
We manually executed the "pop" AccuRev CLI to retrieve files from stream SHCRSC_DEV. The test result showed that timestamps of retrieved files did not change.

2) We already have a desktop tool that uses the "CreateVersion" and "AddFilesToVersion" UCD APIs to import files from developer's workstation to UCD code station.
The second test was done using this tool. The test result showed that the uploaded files kept original timestamps.

These test results showed that the file timestamp changes actually happened in the AccuRev plugin, because both AccuRev CLI and UCD APIs do not make those changes.

In order to keep file timestamps, the code changes are needed in AccuRev Plugin.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
