Email Commands: Revisions

Phabricator is not currently configured to accept inbound mail. You won't be able to interact with objects over email until inbound mail is set up.

Mail Commands Overview

After configuring Phabricator to process inbound mail, you can interact with objects (like tasks and revisions) over email. For information on configuring Phabricator, see Configuring Inbound Email.

In most cases, you can reply to email you receive from Phabricator to leave comments. You can also use mail commands to take a greater range of actions (like claiming a task or requesting changes to a revision) without needing to log in to the web UI.

Mail commands are keywords which start with an exclamation point, like !claim. Some commands may take parameters, like !assign alincoln.

To use mail commands, write one command per line at the beginning or end of your mail message. For example, you could write this in a reply to task email to claim the task:

!claim

I'll take care of this.

When Phabricator receives your mail, it will process any commands first, then post the remaining message body as a comment. You can execute multiple commands at once:

!assign alincoln
!close

I just talked to @alincoln, and he showed me that he fixed this.
