Upsource 2017.2 Help

Searching reviews

You can search specific reviews using a wide range of search criteria including discussion comments. Search across your favorite projects, or limit your search to a particular project you're currently in.

To find a specific review:

  1. From the Upsource entry page: Go to the Reviews tab located in the right pane.

    From a project home page: Click Reviews on top of the revisions list.

  2. Enter your query in the search text field. You can use a drop-down menu to select attributes and values; your recent queries can be also found there:
    search_reviews
  3. Inspect the search results and filter them out if necessary by refining your query. Right below the search field, you can see how many reviews there are in each common group (created, assigned, has concern, etc.) and narrow down the results to a particular group just by clicking it.

Each review has a number of attributes, such as state, commit, author, etc. In turn, each attribute has a value. When searching for specific issues, you specify an attribute with a selected value. You can combine several attribute-value pairs to narrow down your search. For example, state: open created-by: Herbert Binkley will return all reviews created by Herbert Binkley that have not been closed.

#{ready to close} Search for reviews you created that have been completed by all reviewers and can be now closed
#{to review} Search for reviews which you are expected to complete (accept or raise concern about the changes)

You can also search review titles and discussion comments for specific words or phrases, including them in your query.
