Review Enforcement for Perforce (Trigger?)

We would like to enforce code reviews before committing to the repository. We use Perforce. Apparently we cannot do reviews on Shelved submits (BTW: https://www.atlassian.com/software/crucible/overview/code-review-pre-commithints at "pre-commit reviews but I fear that's only for Git). We also want to insure that code is not submitted for production use unless it's review and approved. I assume we need to do this with a Perforce trigger but I have been unable to find one. Is there one? Can it also selectively enforce this (based on say paths into the depot)?

Hi Andrew,

According to this document, the only ways of reviewing code before committing it is by creating pre-commit patches or by uploading files. All the other ways of adding code into a review (Browse Changesets, Explore Repositories, and Search for Files) require the code to have been committed.

Pre-commit reviews can be created for Perforce as well, not only for Git, by using the command line.

It's currently impossible to use shelved commits in Crucible:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CRUC-3378

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CRUC-617

Maybe before submitting the code for production you can commit this code into a Perforce branch, then have a separate repository in FishEye/Crucible that will only index code from this specific branch (by specifying the branch name in the Path configuration in FishEye/Crucible) allowing you to review code committed into it, and once it's reviewed and approved you can submit the code into production?

Kind regards,
Felipe Kraemer
