By default, Crucible projects do not have a moderator. This allows for a streamlined review handling process, where the review author is the sole person who starts and stops the review. However, you can enable the moderator role for Crucible projects, if required.

The moderator role can only be set by a Crucible administrator.

Enabling the moderator role

The moderator role is configurable in Crucible as a per-project setting. By default, all reviews have an author and a moderator. However, the moderator role can be disabled.

To enable or disable the moderator role on a project:

  1. Go to the admin area in Crucible and click Projects (under 'Project Settings').
  2. In the list of projects, click Crucible settings under the three-dots menu (in the 'Actions' column) for the required project.
  3. Check Enable the Moderator role (under 'Moderator').

Removing the moderator role from an existing project

When you remove the moderator role from an existing project, note that:

  • Existing reviews, created before the change, will still retain the moderator they were assigned.
  • Reviews created after the change will not have the moderator role.
  • If the removal of the moderator conflicts with other Crucible project settings, a warning will be shown on the Projects page.

If in doubt about the impact of removing the moderator role, you can create a new project, and set the moderator status while doing that.

Adding the moderator role to an existing project

If you add the moderator role to an existing project, note that:

  • Existing reviews, created before the change, will still have no moderator.
  • Reviews created after the change will have the moderator role added.
  • If the addition of the moderator role conflicts with other Crucible project settings, a warning will be shown on the Project page.

If in doubt about the impact of adding the moderator role, you can create a new project, and set the moderator status while doing that.
