Reviewing File Attachments

New in version 1.6.

File attachments can be reviewed using Review Board. Some file types, such as images, have special interfaces for doing reviews. For image files, see Reviewing Images. For Markdown files, see Reviewing Markdown Files. For other text files, see Reviewing Text Files.

For other files, reviewers can download the files, and add comments to the attachment as a whole.


The file attachment box provides a Add Comment button. Clicking this button pops up a comment dialog that works exactly like the dialog you get when reviewing diffs.


Comments support rich text using the Markdown language. See Using Markdown for more information.

The file attachment comment dialog supports issue tracking. See the section on Issue Tracking for more information.

As of Review Board 1.6.0, there’s no visual indication of an existing comment on the file attachment. However, you can see your comment and edit it by clicking Add Comment again.
