Upsource 2020.1 Help

Upsource UI overview

When you open up and log into Upsource you'll see a general entry page. It displays your company (or team) projects in a convenient order and lets you quickly navigate to the project you need. Each project corresponds to a specific VCS repository.

If you have any projects previously marked as favorite, they'll be at the very top, each accompanied by a heartbeat graph (hover over the graph to see details).

Listed below are the most active projects, recently added projects, and the projects you've recently contributed to.

If you still can't find the specific project:

  • search for it using the search box in the top-right corner (click search-icon.png ), or

  • click See all projects at the bottom, to display all configured projects in alphabetical order.


To open a particular project, just click its name. You'll be redirected to the project home view:
