Filtering commit activity in the changelog

You can filter the commits that are displayed in the activity stream, that is, the commits in the All and Commits tabs of the Activity tab. Note that you cannot use the commits filter to filter reviews.

To filter commit activity:

  1. Go to the Activity tab, as described above. 
  2. When viewing either the All or Commits tab, click Filter commits
  3. Enter filtering criteria for the commits to be displayed:

    CommitterChangesets checked in by the given committer/author.
    Log CommentChangesets where the commit comment matches the given text.
    File ExtensionChangesets that contain files with the specified file extension.
    File NameChangesets that contain a given file.
    Start DateChangesets created on or after that date. Must be of the form YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss, YYYY-MM-DD, YYYY-MM or YYYY (you can use '/' instead of '-').
    End DateChangesets created on or before that date. Must be of the form YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss, YYYY-MM-DD, YYYY-MM or YYYY (you can use '/' instead of '-').
  4. Click Apply.
    • Use Clear to clear the filter.
    • Click Filter commits again to turn off the filter.

Watching the changelog activity

You can "watch" a changelog's activity stream in FishEye and Crucible. Watching the activity stream allows you to receive emails when updates occur in the activity stream. You can view all of your watches and configure the frequency of your watch emails in your user profile. See Changing your user profile for more information.

Note, the option to add a watch will only be available if the administrator has enabled watches for the repository.

To watch an activity stream:

  1. Navigate to the activity stream that you want to watch.
  2. Choose Tools > Watch. The page will reload and a watch will be set up for the activity stream (the watch icon will now be coloured, not grey).
    • To remove the watch,from the activity stream, choose Tools > Watch. The watch will be removed. You can also remove watches from your user profile.

    Does the "File Extension" supports negative filter? Say if we want to filter out all .exe files
