ccollab addchanges (for Mercurial)

Applies to Collaborator 14.6, last modified on July 10, 2024


The ccollab addchanges command uploads locally modified files controlled by Mercurial to a review on the Collaborator server.

Command Line Syntax

ccollab [global-options] addchanges [--upload-comment <value>] <review> <file-spec> [<file-spec> ...]

Command Options






A number of global or SCM-specific global options. See Command-line Global Options Reference.

--upload-comment <value>


A comment to be used for the uploaded files. Default is Local changes.



Identifier of the desired review (an integer number), or a new, ask, or last keyword. Where keywords define the following behaviour:

  • new - the command will create a new review,
  • ask - the command will pause execution and prompt for the identifier of the desired review,
  • last - the command will use the last review that was created on the current machine via Command-Line Client (that is, it does not know about reviews created elsewhere).

<file-spec> [<file-spec> ...]


Files to be added and/or folders to be scanned for modified files.

Separate multiple file and folder names with spaces. If a file or folder name contains spaces, enclose this name is quotes.

ccollab scans folders recursively. The resulting list includes the names of modified files. Modifications include edits, additions, deletions, branches, integrations, moves, copies, and so on.

After the scan is complete, a file list is presented in a graphical editor so you can review the files to be uploaded and correct the list, if needed.


To create a new review and add all changes in the current directory and below, plus the foo.txt file, you would use:

ccollab addchanges new . foo.txt

To upload modified files from the current working directory and all subdirectories to review 123:

ccollab addchanges 123 .

To upload the foo.txt file and modified files from c:\dev\project into a brand new review:

ccollab addchanges new foo.txt c:\dev\project
