Highlights of Crucible 1.2
Reviews grouped into projects
- Crucible now supports projects - every review will belong to a project.
- Each project has a unique key (prefix), modeled on JIRA keys.
- You can add your own projects via the new administration screens.
- You can specify review defaults per project, such as the default users for each role and a default repository.
- And you can restrict the users/groups who can perform a particular role, e.g. only team leaders can be moderators.
- Each project has its own permission scheme (see below).
Customizable permission schemes
- A permission scheme is a set of actions which a user can perform (e.g. create a review, approve a review, etc).
- Each project can have its own custom permission scheme — or you can use the same scheme for multiple projects.
- The permission scheme for a review is determined by the review's project.
- A new plugin Crucible programming interface (API), in beta for this release, supports the following functionality:
- Create or modify reviews and comments.
- Add files, patches, etc to reviews.
- Invoke state transitions.
- Add custom servlet handlers.
