Crucible/FishEye - Link Multiple Trunk Repositories to Single Project

What is the best way to setup multiple (trunk) repositories and single project setup in Crucible/Fisheye? repositories path are like ...svnrepo1/path1/trunk1, ...svnrepo1/path2/trunk2. There are other path exist under same svnrepo1 so we don't prefer setting only svn repo and leaving the path blank/.

FishEye/Crucible Version : 2.9.2 20121210041242

Below are the options we are considering with reference to the documentation/forum. Please suggest the best approach.

1: Create multiple repos and multiple crucible projects. (1-1 relationship between Repo and a project)

2: Create Multiple repos, and one crucible project. (Downside, For every review, the author needs to explicitly select the crucible projects).

3: Create Multiple repos, and one crucible project - Use smart commits. Using this option, the svn commit message would contain "+review nameofcrucible project"

Hello,

If you want to setup multiple repositories to a singe Crucible project, the best approach is to logically split the single svnrepo1 repository by their trunks, and have each of these repos linked to that Crucible project.

Your repository root is ...svnrepo1, right? It's structured like this:

http://svnrepo1
|--
path/to/trunk1
|-- path/to/trunk2

So instead of adding this single repository:
'SVN URL'=http://svnrepo1 and 'Path'=(blank)

You can use:

  • 'SVN URL'=http://svnrepo1 and 'Path'=/path/to/trunk1 for a repository named, e.g., 'trunk1'
  • 'SVN URL'=http://svnrepo1 and 'Path'=/path/to/trunk2 for a repository named, e.g., 'trunk2'

In your case, I do believe that your best option is #3:

Create Multiple repos, and one crucible project - Use smart commits. Using this option, the svn commit message would contain "+review nameofcrucible project"

I hope this helps!
