Set reviewer based on committer


we are evaluating a combination of JIRA and FishEye/Cubicle as an issue tracking/code review solution. We almost no experience with either product beyond installation and some very simple initial tests.

What we would like to is the following:

1) automatically create a Crucible review on every check-in

2) set the reviewer based on the committer, i.e. each developer in our team has a person who is assigned to review their code. We would like to set that automatically.

It appears that we can do 1) using the reviewcreator plug-in. However, I cannot see how I would go about achieving 2).

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

David Sykes

Hi David,

This can be achieved by the use of Smart Commits. By using it, you are able to perform actions in Crucible while commiting through your commit messages.

Please take a look at the document above in order to have further information about what are Smart Commits, how they work and, for your case, you will find very useful information under the topics Creating a Review and Adding Reviewers.

Hi Gustavo, thanks for the response. What we are really after is complete automation. A review should be created and assigned to a reviewer without the developer having to remember to enter anything on their commit message. How could we achieve that?
