no more than 800 file revisions are allowed.


When i am adding branches for review, it prompts "Attempt to add too many revisions to a review - no more than 800 file revisions are allowed.", actually i definately does not change more than 400 files, actully it just about ten files were changed, 


the clue is that the branch live a litter longer, the frist revision of the start the branch is 20498, and last revision number is 20969, is this the reason? another clue is that druing the branch live i merged somethings from another branch, just a few files changed, 

Could someone tell what is wrong?

We are using FishEye and Crucible 3.9.0

Many months have passed without a response.  I filed a formal ticket for this problem, please reference:

I can't view that ticket. Was there any update / fix from them on this?

I have attached a screenshot our Tortoise SVN of us trying to review a branched branch.  Below shows only two changesets with maybe fourty file changes.  However Crucible its calculating WAY more files (+800).  @gwicks did you find a workaround for this?   Atlassian any updates? You never responded to @gwicks  or confirmed his problem. Thanks!

See for some workaround, though keep in mind increasing the limit may impact the performance.

Basically Crucible counts each file revision individually, so if several revisions of the same file are being added to the review, Crucible will count each of them as individual file revision.

It's difficult to say why the limit fired in your case if you have only 10 files amended, I'm guessing you don't have 80 separate commits on each of those files.  Ensure you pick up the feature branch and base branch correctly.

Hope that helps,

This JVM property change does NOT always work.

We just changed the variable from 800 to 1000. NOW I get "no more 1000 file revisions are allowed"

There are at most 14 file revisions in our case. Nowhere near 1000, or 800....

Atlassian needs to fix this.
