Code Review Event Resource

This resource represents Events from Cod Review’s History sub-page. Every time something new happens to a Code Review, an Event is created.

List of available events

Beanstalk will create Events automatically when you push new commits to the branch, create comments, assign users, etc. Events are delivered to all Watchers via special code review digest emails.

  1. create: review was requested;
  2. approve: review was approved;
  3. revoke: user reverted his/her approval of the review;
  4. cancel: review was cancelled;
  5. reopen: review was reopened;
  6. assign: User was assigned to the review;
  7. unassign: User was removed from review’s assignees;
  8. merge: review’s target_branch was successfully merged into source_branch;
  9. commit: commit was made to the target_branch (used for Subversion);
  10. push: push was made to the target_branch (used for Git);
  11. comment: Comment was posted;
  12. added_issue: Issue has been created;
  13. resolved_issue: Issue has been marked as resolved.

New format

We are gradually phasing out XML support from our API and this is one of the first resources that are provided only in JSON format. The format was also a bit adjusted compared to other resources: associated objects (like repositories and users) are now embedded into JSON itself, and there are no JSON root elements anymore.
