Using the Fisheye screens

The sections below describe the different screens in Fisheye and the information you can retrieve from them. Each page (tab) has a number of panes,  each of which is described separately below.


The header along the top of each Fisheye page provides the following:

  • The application navigator, at the left of the header, connects you directly to your other applications, such as Jira and Bamboo. Admins can configure which apps appear in the navigator – just click Application navigator in the admin area.
  • Fisheye logo (with the logo for Crucible if you are using that) –  click to go to the dashboard, to see your personal code commits, your reviews (if you are using Crucible) and your activity stream.
  • Repositories — the list of all Fisheye repositories. Click a repository name to browse the repository. A number of sub-tabs become available, as described below (see 'Repository sub-tabs' below).
  • Projects (when used with Crucible) – a link to all projects (see the Crucible documentation ). Logged-in users can see links to recently visited projects.
  • People – tab to view statistics about commiters to your Fisheye repositories (see Viewing People's Statistics ). Logged in users can see links to users they have recently visited.
  • Reviews (when used with Crucible) – go to your code reviews (see the Crucible documentation). Logged-in users can see links to recently visited  reviews as well as to the Crucible 'Inbox' and 'Outbox'.
  • Create review (when used with Crucible) – click the down arrow to choose Create snippet.
  • + – add a new repository. See Adding an external repository.
  • Search –  use Fisheye's powerful search engine to find changesets, committers and files. See Searching Fisheye.
  • Click your avatar to change your user settings (see Changing your user profile).
