"Crucible is the way forward for Enterprise Architecture and Agile Collaboration"

What do you like best?

The branch trunk feature that replicates my code is the best way to go about reviewing it line by line

What do you dislike?

Too many emails, and hard to control grouping. Also the version control is kind of slow render which would be faster in non browser app i believe

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good for fast moving Agile Code reviews. Lot of flexibility with respect to code tags or versions, and very quick in rendering the updated Java EE contents. Design decisions become evidently clear on page/JSP work from colleagues. Easy to pin point issues that may arrive early in the code. This makes the team get on same page quickly than analyzing differently on different screens.

The only thing to be mindful about is the filtering of the versions. Sometimes the selection takes a bit while to render the selected version, and the user will be under the impression that the filter is already applied and goes about ahead, which is kind of drawback. This is since Crucible we use is a browser application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code review is the best use no prize for guessing. Makes everyone come on same page instantly.

"Good code review tool working with Atlassian stack"

What do you like best?

Integration with Atlassian products. If you integrate with JIRA, Bamboo, and others, you can have an end to end development experience, allowing to:

* ensure all code changes need to be reviewed before releases can be made

* cross-reference code reviews to issues

* cross-reference code reviews to builds and deployments

This allows you to quickly locate what code has been changed, the issues they address, and if they have been reviewed before being allowed to be released into the final product.

What do you dislike?

Mostly minor annoyances such as UI is/was not consistent with other Atlassian tools, user profile does not sync with mismatching avatars. As a code review tool, it works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are using DVCS such as git and mercurial, you should consider using Bitbucket and pull requests instead. But if you are still using SVN, then Crucible is the tool for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running code reviews for code changes, setting up workflows to ensure certain changes (or all changes) are reviewed before changes are released. Catching bugs early in the process rather than after the product is shipped.

What Peer Code Review solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Functional but really seems clunky"

What do you like best?

It is nice to be able to tag individual lines as being a defect or needing resolution.

What do you dislike?

Crucible has an ancient feeling UI. The notification tools are awful, you are either flooded with emails or don't get notified. Also how is there not Slack integration?

The workflow is clunky without accept/reject functionality and only complete, but no one seems to really understand what complete really means.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look long and hard for a better solution as there must be a more modern easier to use solution than this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We desperately needed code review functionality and crucible is what we decided on.

"Best Collaborative code review tool"

What do you like best?

Creates formal, workflow-based, or quick code reviews and assign reviewers from across the team. Integration with Jira is a big plus.

What do you dislike?

Git Commits take up to 10 minutes to show up in Crucible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code reviews and collaboration by visibility across the team.

"Good tool for code review as part of Atlassian's Suite"

What do you like best?

Good integration with other Atlassian tools, specifically with Atlassian Jira

What do you dislike?

Works fine for the application I make of it, with that said my application doesn't use many of the more advanced features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nice interface, good tools for filtering and searching, more than adequate for basic code review and code management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software simplifies code review and gives a nice interface to view changes that have been made within a repository

"New and Efficient Macbook Air"

What do you like best?

The cost of Apple products make them a tough decision but thats definitely worth all that money. The touch pad and hand/gesture controls beat anything in the market.

What do you dislike?

The cost maybe. And it doesnt have a lot of features when u compare to Samsung/Android products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives one an overview of all products your competitors are using.

"Best code review tool"

What do you like best?

Meets all requirement of a good code review tool.

Feature reach, easy to integrate with other version control systems, notification email management.

Best documentation in business.

Integrated documentation.

What do you dislike?

A bit pricey.

dependence on fisheye.

UI/UX looks dated.

lack of first grade keyboard shortcut

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it if you have in-house hosted codebase. You just need to configure fisheye and crucible is good to go. If you have Jira, it will integrate well with that too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code review is a breeze with crucible. Easy setup and easy to start. Integrates well with svn and git both. No problem with large codebase.

"Crucible"

What do you like best?

I like that this solution is very easy to use and I like the reference library.

What do you dislike?

Creating queries is not exactly straight forward.

Recommendations to others considering the product

consider consistency among field names, this needs to be reigned in for ease of querying and reporting. having 5 fields for "client name" makes things more challenging than need be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

custom ticketing platform

"Code review fast and simple"

What do you like best?

The best thing is integration with Jira and GIT repository. It is very fast and simple to create review for commit from Jira, seamless. Notifications for reviews reaching the deadline is also great thing.

What do you dislike?

The most annoying thing is that you cannot copy code from review... it is so frustrating. Sometimes it is hard to find unread comment or replay.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Crucible is very powerful tool with Jira and GIT integration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code quality, code reviews.

"Great for peer reviewing code"

What do you like best?

Very easy to see file changes and works well with Fisheye. You can make general comments on the review, comments on specific files or even comment on a selective set of lines or one line.

What do you dislike?

Documentation review doesn't seem to work with this tool. You cannot comment on particular parts of a document and changes are not tracked in this tool for documents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good for code reviews. Less good for documentation reviews.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy traceability for code reviews and ensures code reviews are performed according the standards we set. It allows us to link code reviews to JIRA issues.

"Crucible"

What do you like best?

JIRA integration with Crucible for code review is very convenient and it's also nice to always have a link to the code review for reference later on.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the user interface gets in the way of the code review, where it's difficult to see the exact differences and changes made between both commits

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe that if you already have JIRA, Crucible is a no brainer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Faster code reviews that multiple people can participate in and be able to clearly have a record of commits and what the changes were directly from JIRA/Crucible.
