Collaborator Settings

As a system administrator, you can configure Collaborator's settings to however you would like. This may be useful in better managing users and how they perform reviews.

These settings can be found and changed by simply clicking on "Admin" at the top menu bar. This button is available to users that are Collaborator administrators and to users with advanced user permissions. Administrators can modify all administrative settings, while users with advanced permissions could modify a limited number of settings depending on what permissions they have.


The administrative settings are grouped into a number of categories:

The System category holds system-wide settings that control Collaborator look and feel, abilities and behaviour.
The Email category holds SMTP server settings and other settings related to e-mail notifications of review activity.
The Version Control category allows to integrate Collaborator with your version control system.
The Triggers category configures Collaborator to run an external script or application when certain events occur.
The Remote System Integration category allows to establish integration with third-party systems, like JIRA, GitHub or Bitbucket.
The Licensing category manages Collaborator licenses.
The System Status category displays various data about server, database, connection and allows to perform server backup and debugging.
The Users category allows to create users, view user statistics and edit user accounts.
The Groups category allows to create and organize user groups. Groups of users are used for reporting, filtering and for assigning reviews to multiple users.
The Review Templates category allows to create and manage review templates: sets of roles, custom fields, and other options that determine the behavior and rules of a review.
The Custom Fields category allows to create your own fields for users to annotate reviews, participants and defects with necessary information.
The Checklists category allows to create and manage a list of items that should be checked in every review.
The Roles category allows to specify the rights and privileges of review participants.
The Automatic Links category specifies regular expression patterns to treat certain text fragments as links.
The Notification Templates category allows to customize the content of notification e-mails that Collaborator sends to review participants.
The Savings Report category displays how much money you have saved by using Collaborator compared to non-code reviewed process.
