Link jobs to the changelists that fix them.
g-opts] fix [-d] [-s
p4 fix command links jobs (descriptions of work to be done)
to a changelist (a set of changes to files that does the work described
by a job).
If the changelist has not yet been submitted, the job appears on the
p4 submit or
p4 change form for
the changelist to which it’s linked, and under normal circumstances, the
status of the job is changed to
closed when the changelist is
submitted. If the changelist has already been submitted when you run
p4 fix, the job’s status is changed to a default status
Because described work can be fixed over multiple changelists, one job
can be linked to multiple changelists. Because a single changelist might
fix ten bugs, multiple jobs can be linked to the same changelist. You
can do this in one command execution by providing multiple jobs as
The changelist to mark as fixed.
Delete the fix record for the specified job at the specified changelist. The job’s status will not change.
Upon submission of the changelist, change the job’s status to
status, rather than the default value

- Because the format of jobs can be changed from site to site, it is
possible that the jobs on your system no longer have a
Status:field. If so, you can still link jobs to changelists with
p4 fix, but Perforce will not change any of the job fields' values when the changelist is submitted.
- You can change a fixed or unfixed job’s status at any time by editing
the job with

If you use
p4 fix -s statuson a job, and then use the
p4 change, the
Jobs:field of the changelist’s form will also require a status value (the default value being the one specified by
p4 fix -s status). The job(s) will be assigned the specified status upon successful submission of the changelist. If no status value is specified in the form, the error message:
Wrong number of words for field 'Jobs'.
p4 fix -s status,
p4 submit -s, and
p4 change -sare intended for use in conjunction with defect tracking systems.
Under normal circumstances, end users do not use these commands, and use
p4 changewithout the
-soption. In this case, only the job number is required in the
Jobs:field, and each job’s status is set to a default value (typically
closed) on completion of the submit.
Mark two jobs as being fixed by changelist 201.
