setup-repo

New in version 0.5.3.

rbt setup-repo will interactively configure your repository to point to a Review Board server by generating or overwriting the configuration file .reviewboardrc in the current working directory.

Usage

$ rbt setup-repo [options] 

Configuring repositories on your server

Prior to running setup-repo, ensure that your repositories are configured on the Review Board server you wish to connect to. RBTools will not find repositories that have not been added to the server.

If you are an RBCommons customer, you can add repositories under your team administration settings. If you are managing your own deployment of Review Board, refer to the Admin Dashboard. Learn more about configuring repositories.

Setting up your server

If REVIEWBOARD_URL is not defined in your .reviewboardrc, you will be prompted to enter the URL of a valid Review Board server you want to connect to. Alternatively, you may use --server to skip this prompt.

Note that if you use RBCommons, you will need to verify your RBCommons credentials first.

Selecting a repository

If RBTools finds multiple repositories in your Review Board server, you can select which repository you want to use. If no repositories are found, this means that you currently have no repositories configured on your server (see configuring repositories on your server).

When you select a repository, you will be prompted to confirm the repository of your choice, as well as any changes to your current .reviewboardrc configuration file. Confirming will generate or update your .reviewboardrc with information related to your chosen repository.

After generating .reviewboardrc

Thanks to your newly generated .reviewboardrc file, you can now use RBTools to communicate between your chosen repository and your Review Board server.
