Power Pack supercharges Review Board, adding several features designed to enhance your review experience.
Source code is only one part of the software development process. PRDs, design proposals, end-user technical documentation, and patent disclosures are just a few of the numerous documents that get written, discussed, and edited along the way.
Document review brings the same powerful, lightweight review process to PDF files that developers have enjoyed for their source code. Documents are displayed right in the browser without a need for any plug-ins or extra software to be installed.
Different revisions of a document can also be diffed, helping see the changes made as the document evolves.
Reports gives you several powerful ways of looking at how your developers are taking advantage of Review Board. Our at-a-glance graphs will show you who is pulling their weight, how thoroughly code is being reviewed, and more.
Microsoft Team Foundation Server integration
Power Pack makes it easy to add your Team Foundation Server repositories, whether hosted in your own network or on Visual Studio Team Services. Using RBTools 0.7 or higher, you can post any changes for review quickly and easily.
GitHub Enterprise integration
Power Pack adds support for GitHub Enterprise, allowing you to manage your source code in-house behind the firewall.
Configuration is simple: just tell Review Board the URL of your GitHub Enterprise server, and then link an account with a username and password.
Bitbucket Server integration
Using Bitbucket Server in your network? You can link up to your Git repositories there as well.
Much like GitHub Enterprise, you just need to specify the URL to your Bitbucket Server and provide a login and password to link up. Then it's simple to add any user-owned or project-owned repositories.
AWS CodeCommit integration
Maybe you're using AWS CodeCommit, hosting your Git repositories in your Amazon Web Servies account. We've got you covered there, as well. You can easily link up your CodeCommit repositories using a dedicated read-only IAM user, ensuring your setup is secure.
Scale up your installation
Most Review Board installations work fine running on a single server, but some very large installations with many thousands of users may require additional hardware for speed or fault tolerance.
Power Pack includes facilities for storing auxiliary data like SSH keys in the database rather than on the front-end server's filesystem, which allows you to add capacity by spinning up additional servers as needed.
