Important gerrit commands

This post list the details of some of the important gerrit commands which we have tried, (This post will be updated as and when we use the commands)

Note: The gerrit commands are executed on Ubuntu gerrit review server https://review.opendev.org/ . You may need to register to execute same commands on this server.

Check gerrit version

ssh -p GERRIT_PORT -i PATH_TO_SSH_PRIVATE_KEY GERRIT_SERVER_URL gerrit version 

Example of this is,

$ ssh -p 29418 -i /home/devlab/.ssh/id_rsa review.opendev.org gerrit version 
  • “-p” you can change the gerrit port used for ssh authentican.
  • “-i ” – specify ssh private key.

Check list of projects from gerrit server

ssh -p GERRIT_PORT -i PATH_TO_SSH_PRIVATE_KEY GERRIT_SERVER_URL gerrit ls-projects 
$ ssh -p 29418 -i /home/devlab/.ssh/id_rsa review.opendev.org gerrit ls-projects 

Get the information from gerrit server

ssh -p GERRIT_PORT -i PATH_TO_SSH_PRIVATE_KEY GERRIT_SERVER_URL gerrit query project:{^PROJECT_NAME} --format=JSON --all-approvals --comments --all-reviewers 

You can use the project name as obtained using “gerrit ls-projects” command as above to get the information such as approvals, comments, reviews etc in the format of JSON.

ssh -p 29418 -i /home/devlab/.ssh/id_rsa review.opendev.org gerrit query project:{^All-Projects} --format=JSON --all-approvals --comments --all-reviewers
