This page contains instructions on how to use the People tab in Crucible to see charts and activity from people with accounts on the system.

On this page:

Opening the List of People

To view statistics on People in Crucible, (that is, code authors, committers and reviewers) click the People tab at the top of the page. The list of all People appears.

The list of all people shows all users that have accounts on the system. By default, each user has a unique avatar that is randomly formed from the text in their email address. Users can choose to upload their own avatar image by uploading an image to an external service such as Gravatar, which Crucible supports. See the page on Changing your User Profile.

Viewing a Person's Activity Screen

Click on a user to see a listing of activity from them as well as charts showing statistics for their activity. The People Activity screen opens.

In the right hand pane, we can see a list of all activity that relates to this user. You can click the icons to view full commit information in FishEye, click JIRA issue names to open the work ticket on an item, click the long button to see the list of files in context or click the star icon to add an item to your favourites.

In the left hand pane, we can see charts around this activity, such as the following: number of active reviews; charted history of lines of code; code committing activity and general statistics.

Some users may not appear to have the correct number of Files Changed or LOC, despite regularly committing. In this situation, if they have committed to a directory which is not covered by the regexes in your symbolic definition (i.e. they have committed to a directory that is neither trunk, branches or tags) then that directory will be counted as part of trunk. Also note that creating tags and branches themselves does not count toward the totals.

Viewing Charts on a Person's Activity

To see information on a person's activity charted in detail, click the headings in the left-hand pane. Each heading will show more information on demand, when clicked. The information available and what it means is listed below.

(warning) The Charts in this section are only available when using FishEye.

  • Username heading:
    The username section shows the email address, then the first and latest commit dates for the person in context. It also shows username mappings from various systems if they have several usernames in play.
  • Reviews heading:
    The Reviews section shows several filters that you can click to constrain the review items shown in the right-hand pane. The options are To Review, To Summarize, Out For Review, Open and Closed.
  • Line History heading:
    The Line History section shows a graph with the number of lines committed to the repository, charted over time.
  • Commit Activity heading:
    The Commit Activity section shows three smaller charts; the first showing the volume of commits over a 52 week period; the second showing the relative number of commits on days of the week; the third showing the relative number of commits by the hour of the day when they were lodged.
  • Stats heading:
    The Stats section shows data points for the previous week and all-time. It shows number of commits, number of files changed and number of lines changed.
  • No labels
