View changeset graphs

A changeset graph visualizes streams and branches and their change history across multiple releases. You can filter changeset graphs and display changesets in groups.

Changeset health

A changeset graph provides development teams and release managers with a visual understanding of what changes are being worked on, where, and why. Plugins provide an opinion on the health of changes and an indication of release readiness.

Changeset health is displayed visually using a combination of the plugin opinions of the changes and the review state:

Icon Description
The changeset is currently healthy and the review was successful.
The changeset is not healthy or the review failed.
The changeset is unstable.
Plugins are currently running on the changeset.
Plugins are scheduled to run on the changeset.
No plugins ran on the changeset and no review is available.
The changeset was stopped.

When the review and plugin actions are completed, a changeset icon has a solid border, for example:

When the review or any plugins are in progress, a changeset icon has a cog wheel border, for example:

View changeset graph

A changeset graph enables you to:

  • Visualize all your streams, branches, and projects in one place including branches and merges. Each circle or group represents a changeset or a group of changesets.

  • Review the health and readiness of your changesets and determine if they are ready to be merged or released.

  • Watch in real time as streams and branches are branched, merged, and moved through the lifecycle.

To view a changeset graph:

  1. From the spaces list at the top right, select a space.
  2. To restrict the scope of the search, drill down to open the relevant product, Git repository, or stream/branch.
  3. In the sidebar, select Changeset Graph.
  4. (Optional) Filter the information displayed on the graph, as described in Filter changeset graph or history.

    Additionally, you can sort the streams and branches on the graph by name, creation date, last activity, and in ascending or descending order.

  5. (Optional) You can group changesets by days or weeks. For details, see Group changesets.

  6. Use the graph to view the changeset details:

    Action Description
