[Crucible Knowledge Base]
This page explains the roles and status classifications in Crucible.
The author is the person primarily responsible for acting on the outcomes of the review. In the vast majority of cases the author will be the person who made the code change under review.
The creator is the person who creates the review. In most cases this person will also act as moderator. The moderator is the person responsible for creating the review, approving the review, determining when reviewing is finished, summarising the outcomes and closing the review. By default, the moderator is the creator. See also author, the person whose changes to the code are to be reviewed.
A reviewer is a person assigned to review the change. Reviewers can make comments and indicate when they have completed their review. The moderator and author are implicitly considered to be participants of the review, but are not reviewers.
A user is a person using Crucible.
Draft Reviews are not yet completed or released to the reviewers.
Reviews Under Review are either waiting for attention by reviewers or waiting to be summarized.
Summarized reviews are past the reviewing phase. The moderator can still add conclusions or comments.
Closed reviews are complete.
Abandoned reviews are 'in the trash'. Reviews must be Abandoned before they can be deleted.
