    7372The screenshots in the examples above show basic examples.  There are some additional extensions:
    75 === Workflow ===
     74=== Workflow - field validation ===
    7675There are many ways to integrate code reviews into your Trac ticket workflow.  As just one example, you may have a {{{phase}}} custom field that includes different phases:
    7776 1. implementation
    8584    phase.invalid_when.1 = .codereviewstatus .pending (msg:Pending code reviews.)
    8685    phase.invalid_if.2 = verifying
    87     phase.invalid_when.2 = .codereviewstatus:last .rejected (msg:The last code review did not pass.)
     86    phase.invalid_when.2 = .codereviewstatus:last .failed (msg:The last code review did not pass.)
    8887    }}}
    90 === Jenkins ===
    91 tbd
     90=== Continuous Integration (Jenkins / Hudson / Bitten / etc.) ===
     91[ Gerrit's] philosophy is to treat a code review similar to a Jenkins test job - i.e., code changes do not get promoted to the next stage in a continuous integration / deployment pipeline until they pass a review.  You can achieve this effect with this plugin via an included [browser:codereviewerplugin/0.12/coderev/util/ Reviewer] class.
     93In brief, [browser:codereviewerplugin/0.12/coderev/util/ Reviewer] accepts a target git reference (e.g., "develop" or "master") and its {{{get_next_changeset()}}} method will return the changeset that is closest to that target (since the last changeset found) whose referenced ticket(s) have been completed.  A "completed" ticket is one that passed the workflow tests described above - i.e.,
     94 * the ticket has no PENDING changesets to review, ''and''
     95 * the ticket's last changeset PASSED review.
     97You can configure this plugin to trigger a Jenkins job (or any command) in {{{trac.ini}}}:
     100command = curl
     103In the example above, each time a code review is submitted for a completed ticket, the {{{stage_deploy}}} Jenkins job gets triggered.  The job would then call [browser:codereviewerplugin/0.12/coderev/util/ Reviewer.get_next_changeset()] to determine what git changeset to deploy (if any).  (Note that this trigger for, say, a stage environment would be in addition to any trigger for running tests against the HEAD of your branch - or however you may currently have your CI system setup.)
     105==== Completeness criteria ====
     106You can also add "completeness" criteria to determine when a ticket is actually complete and ready for deployment.  For example, if your workflow encourages ongoing code reviews on tickets that may not be fully complete, you can specify one or more ticket fields to use as additional criteria to determine completeness in {{{trac.ini}}}:
     109completeness = phase=(codereview|verifying|releasing)
     112In the above example, a "complete" ticket is now defined as not only having all changesets reviewed and the last review PASSED, but also that the ticket's custom phase field has a value of either codereview, verifying, or releasing.
     114The format of the completeness {{{trac.ini}}} options is a comma-delimited list of field-rule pairs where a rule is a regex that is used to match the field's value.
     117=== Workflow - ticket changes ===
     118You can have code review submissions automatically change fields of completed tickets.  Continuing the workflow example from above, if a ticket's custom phase field gets set to "codereview" and reassigned to a reviewer, the reviewer may typically send the ticket back to "implementation" and the author after the review.  The plugin can do this automatically via specifying this in {{{trac.ini}}}:
     121failed = phase=implementation,owner={author}
     122passed = phase=verifying,owner={author}
     125Upon a failed review in the above example, the ticket's phase field will get set to "implementation" and the ticket's owner field will get set to the same value as the author field (assuming there is one).  The curly braces syntax indicates to copy the value from the indicated field.  Similarly, a passed review will change the ticket's phase field to "verifying" and set the owner field to the author.
     127Note: these automated ticket changes will only happen for ''completed'' tickets following the same definition as defined above (i.e., all changesets are reviewed and the last review PASSED, and satisfy all completeness criteria if defined) - with the exception that the last review does not need to have passed to trigger the failed ticket change rules (obviously).
