My organisation are using Fisheye/Crucible for code review. However I think it has a serious failing in that code review is always done AFTER check-in. So code review is something done after potentially bad code has been checked in.
Is there any way we can configure fisheye/crucible so that code is only checked in to Our version control tool i.e. Perforce after it has been through review?
The model you described is indeed more often used as most customers find it easier to have the proposed changes checked in on a dedicated feature branch, have it reviewed and merged to default only when the review was approved.
But Crucible allows to do pre commit reviews too. See https://www.atlassian.com/software/crucible/overview/code-review-pre-commitand https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CRUCIBLE/Creating+patch+files+for+pre-commit+reviewsfor more details. Basically it requires code author to create a patch and add this to review. Note this can be easily done with a command line tool prepared for this purpose, see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CRUCIBLE/Creating+reviews+from+the+command+line.
Hope that helps,
