Weblinking options example

Select a git host from the Web Link list. The web linking input box options are automatically filled out with corresponding variables for the selected git host. Change the variables according to the actual URL settings of the git host. Configure server and port and ${rev} will be substituted based on the commit ID.

You can create several custom configuration to support other git hosting providers. The following five URLs should be configured for setup:

ChangeSet Format

This is the URL used to display revision. Use the following variable: ${rev} – git revision

File Added Format, File Modified Format, File Deleted Format

This is the URL to display content of added, modified or deleted files. Use the following variables:

  • ${num} – number of change (0, 1, …)
  • ${rev} – git revision
  • ${path} – path of the file being changed
  • ${parent} – parent git revision
  • ${blob} – ID of blob object
  • ${parent_blob} – ID of parent blob object
  • $convert(${branch},"subStr","newSubStr") – this inline function returns branch name with subStr replaced by a newSubStr. As of v2.11.0 of the Git Integration app, the ${branch} code has been changed to cope up with the character requirements on some hosting services.
