An enterprise-grade source code management solution widely used for hardware and software development.
Cliosoft SOS is an enterprise-grade source code management solution widely used for hardware and software design and development. It's built to allow teams across the globe to collaborate on large hardware-focused projects.
We’ve partnered with Cliosoft to bring support for SOS to Review Board. You can now connect your SOS projects to Review Board as repositories, post code from local workareas using RBTools, and review them using Review Board’s collection of code review capabilities. This includes issue tracking for comments, moved code detection, multi-line commenting, interdiffs, file attachment review, and more.
SOS support is available as of Power Pack 5 (our licensed add-ons for Review Board) and RBTools 3.1 (our developer command line tools).
SOS support requires the following minimum versions on the Review Board server:
- SOS 7.20
- Review Board 4.0.6
- Power Pack 5
And on developer machines:
Power Pack is a licensed product. Licenses can be purchased by credit card or Purchase Order, and can cover as many or as few Review Board users as needed for SOS.
You can get started with a 60-day trial license.
Please note that this is separate from your SOS license.
Using RBTools to Post Changes For Review
RBTools makes it simple to post code for review right from your command prompt. For example, you can post all modified files for review:
$ rbt post Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #2 posted. https://reviewboard/r/2/ https://reviewboard/r/2/diff/
Or a specific selection:
$ rbt post 'select:-scm -sor -sunm' Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #3 posted. https://reviewboard/r/3/ https://reviewboard/r/3/diff/
Or a specific files:
$ rbt post -I ./file1 ./file2 ./file3 Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #4 posted. https://reviewboard/r/4/ https://reviewboard/r/4/diff/
Or a changelist (new in SOS 7.20):
$ rbt post my-changelist Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #5 posted. https://reviewboard/r/5/ https://reviewboard/r/5/diff/
You can see more examples in the Using RBTools With Cliosoft SOS guide.
To get started, download Review Board and RBTools, and then get a free Power Pack trial license. Once installed, follow our documentation on configuring repositories and posting changes for review.
