Question:
Can harvest ignore certain files like *.bat , *.ini files when checking in?
Environment:
CA Harvest SCM versions 12.x and up, Windows platform, Workbench
Answer:
The Ignored Resources tab on the Preferences window is used for a “global” restriction. If you want to narrow it to specific projects, you will need to use the SCM Workareas and set up your “Ignored Resources” in the workarea instead of using the Global preference. I think the links I gave before should let you know how this can be done:

Look for section titled “File and Directory Exclusions” 

And another article specifically about Working with the “Workarea”:

Look for section titled “Ignored Files”
