What is the format of the "Commit URI Format:" field when registering a git repository with RTC?

Michael Ricketts (3324) | asked Nov 17 '14, 11:25 a.m.

We have RTC 5.0.1 installed, and are trying to use git for source control.  I've successfully registered our git (actually, gitlab) server with RTC, and things are generally working.  Git commits are correctly associated with workitems, but the links displayed in RTC don't work.  I think this is because the "Commit URI Format:" field on the git repository settings in RTC is not set, but I can't figure out what it needs to be.

The correct URL is something like https://<server>/commit/1faf0f7592b035a3fcf799925893e70c30a386a1

Any ideas what I need to put in the Commit URI Format field to get RTC to correctly find the commits?

You can put the following:

where in $repo is replaced by the Git Repository URL as mentioned while registering
and, $sha1 is replaced by the commit hash id

Perfect, thank you!
Are there any other $xxx variables that get expanded (just for interest)?

Nope, just these two for now!

Is this documented anywhere?  I have looked through the 5.0 through 6.0 docs trying to find this info.

I am doing a Git-RTC integration and everything is looking fine but when I click on the Link created on the RTC -> WorkItem -> Change Sets (Remote) -> Link -> Comments with WorkItem xxx

I got following error:

Error occured when fetching commit summary for commit id  xxxxxxxxxxxxx12345xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

and no change set is displayed.

Could you plz. support?
