Upsource 3.5 Help

Viewing history of changes in a repository

Upsource entry page displays configured projects, where each project corresponds to a specific VCS repository.

To open a particular project, just click its name. The project home view will be displayed:

assets/browse/project_home_large.png

In the main pane you see a list of recent revisions of that project displayed in a chronological order.

Each entry shows:

  • a committer userpic (if any)
  • a committer username
  • a branch name branch_name
  • a commit message
  • a revision ID
  • a commit timestamp (when the commit took place)
  • a review icon (CR_reviewIcon open and closed_review_icon closed) and ID linking to the review (if this revision is included in a review)
  • a discussion counter discussion_counter (shows the number of discussion threads if this revision contains any)

View options allow you to customise the way the revision list is displayed:

revis_list_view_options

The list is displayed in a Full view by default. Switching to a Compact view hides userpics and lets the list take less space in your browser window:

assets/browse/revis_list_compact_large.png

You can also expand all revision entries to show affected files contained in each revision.

Clicking more_button at the bottom of the list brings out the next portion of older revisions.

The list of revisions is accompanied by a commit graph that helps visualize the history of commits, branches, and merges in your repository:

commit_graph

You can hide it using View options.
