Upload changes from multiple repositories

Changes in two or more separate repos will be automatically tracked for you by Gerrit if you use the same topic.

Multipart changes that are tracked in Gerrit using the same topic will be tested together. These changes can be landed in Gerrit at the same time with Submit Whole Topic. Topics can be edited using the Gerrit UI on your browser.

Using jiri upload

To upload changes together, you need to create a branch with same name on all repositories.

Do the following:

  1. Make and commit the first change in a Fuchsia repository:

    1. Go to the repository:

      cd examples/fortune
      
    2. Create a new branch; for example, add_my_new_feature:

      git checkout -b add_my_new_feature
      
    3. Edit and add the files related to the feature:

      git add <my_feature_related_files>
      
    4. Commit your first change:

      git commit
      
  2. Make and commit the second change in another Fuchsia repository:

    1. Go to the second repository:

      cd fuchsia/build
      
    2. Create a new branch with the same name, add_my_new_feature:

      git checkout -b add_my_new_feature
      
    3. Edit and add the files related to the feature:

      git add <more_of_my_feature_related_files>
      
    4. Commit your second change:

      git commit
      
  3. Use -multipart to upload all changes with the same branch name across repos:

    jiri upload -multipart
    

    Or

    jiri upload -multipart -topic="custom_topic"
    

After the changes are submitted, clean up the local branches:

cd examples/fortune
git branch -d add_my_new_feature

And

cd fuchsia/build
git branch -d add_my_new_feature

Using Git command

You can also use the git command to upload all changes across repositories. The steps are identical as the steps in Using jiri upload; however, instead of jiri upload -multipart in Step 3, use the following git command to upload your changes:

git push origin HEAD:refs/for/master%topic=add_my_new_feature
