Crucible API to change the author of Code Review

We are used the Perofrce and Crucible ( and try to develop the pre-commit code review system.

After creating the Code Review request by file, I want to change the author of Code Review to proper user by CLI, JAVA or REST API.

How can I do that ? can you give me some suggestion ?

If you have example code, please share it to me

Hello Yoo,

This is the latest Crucible REST API reference:

As can be seen, unfortunately there's no REST API call that you can use in order to change the author. Maybe some SQL queries can help?
This one will tell you all the existing users and their IDs. Take note of the ID of the user you want to set as new author:
select cru_user_id, cru_user_name from cru_user;

Now, let's say that the key of the review you've just created is CR-1. This query will tell you what is the author of this review:

select cu.cru_user_id, cu.cru_user_name, cr.cru_name 
from cru_review cr, cru_user cu, cru_project cp
where cr.cru_creator = cu.cru_user_id
and cr.cru_project = cp.cru_project_id
and cp.cru_proj_key = 'CR'
and cr.cru_review_id = 1;

Now you just need to update the author, by running this query:

update cru_review set cru_creator = 2 where cru_review_id = 1;

I hope this helps!
