Is it possible to view all files at a given commit and not just the ones that were changed?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Viewing Log/History of a Repository

Is it possible to view all the files as they were at a given commit and not just the files that were changed? I would like to be able to have a treeview of the files available at every single commit, just like git-extensions have in their "File tree" pane when browsing a repository.

Best Regards

Yes.  In the pul-down menu in the upper left corner (it probably says something like "Pending files, sorted by file status") select "all Files" (and perhaps "sorted by path", if you like)

What you describe only shows all files for the currently checked out branch.

I want to see all the files (at the bottom arrow) at any given commit when I select a commit from the history (top arrow). See screen shot:

Just check out the commit.  Then go to the File Status screen.

I know that it is possible, but it makes for a very cumbersome workflow if you are looking for something specific.

I think it's the best you can do.  As far as I know, the bottom of the History tab is always going to just show the diff between commits.

Theoretically if you had an initial commit that was (mostly) empty you could do a multi-select to compare a given commit with that empty commit, which should give you a pretty comprehensive list of the files - but that seems a bit kludgey.
