p4 review

List and track changelists (for the review daemon).


p4 [g-opts] review [-c changelist] [-t countername]

Syntax conventions


p4 review lists changelists that have not been reviewed before, as tracked by the specified counter. If the counter is omitted, p4 review lists all changelists.

If a changelist# and counter are specified, p4 review sets the counter to that changelist# and produces no output. This functionality has been superceded by the p4 counter command.

p4 review is not meant as an end-user command. It exists to support an automated change review daemon.


-c changelist

List all submitted changelists above and including changelist.

-t countername

List all submitted changelists above the value of the Perforce counter countername.

-c changelist -t countername

Set the value of counter countername to changelist. This command has been replaced by p4 counter, but has been maintained for backwards compatibility.


See Global options.
