Adding files to a review results in the following message:


The default maximum number of revisions allowed by Crucible is 800 and you tried to add a file that exceeded this limit.

Adding files with more than 800 reviews can potentially slow down the instance:

  • Impact the performance of Crucible - the review takes a long time to load and can be slow on the client-side.
  • Cause issues indexing data. A large review can cause a repository to get stuck on "Indexing Review Data" for a long time.
