Autodelegation allows patches to be automatically delegated to a user based on the files modified by the patch. To do this, a number of rules can be configured in the project administration page. This can usually be found at:
Autodelegation can only be configured by Patchwork administrators, i.e. those that can access the ‘admin’ panel. If you require configuration of autodelegation rules on a local instance, contact your Patchwork administrator.
In this section there are the following fields:
- The patchwork user that should be autodelegated to the patch
- The priority of the rule relative to other patches. Higher values indicate higher priority. If two rules have the same priority, ordering will be based on the path.
A path in fnmatch format. The fnmatch library allows for limited, Unix shell-style wildcarding. Filenames are extracted from patch lines beginning with
You can simply use a bare path:
Or it is also possible to use relative paths, such as:
Rules are configured by setting the above fields and saving the rules. These rules will be applied at patch parse time.
