From a Crucible Review Comment, can I reference a changeset?

Is there a wiki markup syntax that I could use within a comment in a review, for example "This error was fixed in changeset ref:9583234" where the ref: becomes a link to fisheye (or..something) showing that change set?

This is not supported out of the box with Crucible, however you can achieve the same by configuring a custom Linker .

You can add a linker at the repository defaults section, with the following definition for Git/Hg repositories:

Regular Expression:




Then, if you reference a SHA256 hash in any Crucible comment, it will be hyperlinked off to that changeset in FishEye.

For SVN, CVS or Perforce, you would need to adjust the RegEx above to match those CSIDs instead!

NB: You can have multiple linkers, so if you have a mixture of repo types, all this should still work fine.

Awesome, thank you! I can get the link to show up in the review comment, and the query page shows up with the right change ID, but the search found no results - is there something else needed to tie this into P4?

Ah ha! It seems you only have a Crucible license. Viewing and sarching for changesets is a feature of FishEye. You can obtain a 30 day eval for free via:

@Tony Rasa - can you confirm that FishEye has indexed the changeset you've linked to? The search should show it if its been indexed ? Maybe attach a screenshot of your empty search result page?

Yes, it appears to have been indexed, at least I have tested with changesets that have other crucible reviews created for them anyhow.
