Codebase HQ Repositories

Review Board supports posting and reviewing code on Codebase HQ repositories.

The following types of Codebase HQ repositories are supported:

  • Git

  • Mercurial

  • Subversion

To simplify posting changes to Review Board, we recommend using RBTools. This ensures that the diffs are in the correct format, and makes managing review requests much easier.

Adding the Repository

To configure a Codebase HQ repository, first proceed to add the repository and select Codebase HQ from the Hosting type field.

Step 2: Provide Repository Information

Next, you’ll need to fill out the following fields:

Repository type:

The type of repository you’re adding. This can be either “Git”, “Mercurial”, or “Subversion”.

Project name:

The name of the project owning the repository.

Repository name:

The name (identifier) of the repository. This must be the name found in the checkout/clone URL, not the displayed name (for instance, “myrepo” and not “My Repository”).

Step 3: Choose a Bug Tracker

Review Board 2.5.8 and higher support using Codebase HQ’s ticket tracker. If you want to use the ticket tracker for your repository, you can simply enable the Use hosting service’s bug tracker option.

For older versions, you can choose (Custom Bug Tracker) and specify https://<your-domain>.codebasehq.com/projects/<your-project>/tickets/%s, where <your-domain> matches your Codebase domain field and <your-project> matches your Project name field.

If you’re using a separate bug tracker, or a separate project on Codebase HQ, you can leave the checkbox unchecked and choose a bug tracker from the list.

Learn more about bug tracker configuration.

Step 4: Manage Access Control

You can now choose who should have access to this repository (both posting against it and viewing review requests posted against it). This is separate from Codebase HQ’s own access controls.

Learn more about access control.

Step 5: Save the Repository

At this point, you should be able to save the repository. If saving succeeds, you’re done! You can start posting changes for review.
