Administering projects

A Crucible project provides a way to group and manage related reviews – typically reviews that are all involved with the same software project. A Crucible project allows you to

  • define default moderators, authors and reviewers for the reviews in that project.
  • define which people are eligible to be reviewers for the reviews in that project.
  • use permission schemes to restrict who can perform particular actions (e.g. 'Create Review') in that project.

Every Crucible review belongs to a project. Each project has a name (e.g. ACME Development) and a key (e.g. ACME). The project key becomes the first part of that project's review keys, e.g. ACME-101, ACME-102, etc:

By default, Crucible contains one project. This default project has the key 'CR' and the name 'Default Project'.


When administering your Crucible projects from the projects listing in the admin area, you can:

  • Click Add a new project (at the top-right corner) to create a new project.
  • Choose Crucible settings from the three-dots menu (in the 'Actions' column) for a project, to edit its settings
  • Click the bin icon for an existing project to delete it. See Deleting a project below.


Deleting a project

Before you begin:

  • By default, Crucible contains one project; it has the key 'CR' and the name 'Default Project'. This project cannot be deleted.
  • Deleted projects cannot be recovered.

To delete a Crucible project:

  1. Go to the admin area and click Projects (under 'Project Settings').
  2. Click the bin icon (in the 'Actions' column) for the project you wish to remove.
    • You'll be prompted to confirm the deletion.
    • If empty, the project disappears instantly.
    • If the project contains reviews, you will be prompted to either delete all the reviews in the project, or move them into the default project.
