How to review diff of one file on different Perforce branches with Crucible?


Although I looked into many items in the community, Jira database and the documentation, sadly it feels like Perforce branches are not fully supported - at least not the way I expect. I am having trouble reviewing a branched file:

I like to compare the content of one file against a branched version of the same file (created via p4 integrate). Although I added correct branch mappings (p4 branch) Crucible adds the two revisions as two independent files to a review instead the expected diff-view. My assumption is that Crucible/FishEye recognizes the different depot paths, while ignoring the branch spec/mapping knowledge.

How to create such a review of one file on two branches as a diff-review?

Did you consider creating a diff from a command line and attaching it to a review as patch?
