If you add a repository to a project then it becomes a default repository when creating a review in this project. Thanks to this, users don't have to select a repository from a drop-down while adding changesets / branches to the review. 

Thanks you.

Please could you elaborate,  Why we are adding GIt Repo to Crucible?

I guess that you host your Git repositories on Bitbucket Server - am I correct?

Please bear in mind the difference between Bitbucket Server and FishEye/Crucible:

  • Bitbucket Server is primarily a Git hosting tool - you can manage repositories, define permissions etc; on top of it it has some search features and you can perform code reviews for pull requests
  • FishEye and Crucible do not host Git repositories - they just "read" them; 
    • FishEye indexes the entire repository giving you great search possibilities - much more powerful than Bitbucket - you can search for file names, diffs, file contents, commit messages etc
    • Crucible is a sophisticated code review tool - you can fine-tune content of the review - e.g. select particular changesets or files and much more


Here you can find other benefits of having FishEye and Crucible in addition to Bitbucket, listed by some user:
