  • always - Always try to activate the extension (old behavior)
  • autodetect - Only activate when detecting a valid depot or .p4config file (default)
  • off - Don't try to activate

The following can be set in VSCode user or workspace settings to properly detect the perforce depot

You can also create a .p4config file at the root of your workspace with perforce variables
