When i use api method "comment_commit" i see the new comment for commit with text "Status change on commit: Approved ". But in web interface "Commit status" on commit not changed. How to change review status of commit from api?

    What version are you using (rhodecode, and rhodecode-api) ? I just executed a command:

    rhodecode-api --instance-name=dev changeset_comment repoid:aa-root-level-repo-1 revision:df2c6023a173d24a85a8c4cc04e6717f001fe322 status:approved message:approved

    and it correctly set the approval state.

    rhodecode: 4.5.2
    I not use rhodecode-api, i use REST API:
    {"id":1,"auth_token":"...","method":"comment_commit", "args":{"apiuser":"madlord","repoid":"...","commit_id":"8a9ab4d889db","message":"set status","status":"approved"}}'

    And i use comment_commit method, not changeset_comment. Because changeset_comment method is deprecated (

    That's odd i tried also

    rhodecode-api --instance-name=dev comment_commit repoid:aa-root-level-repo-1 commit_id:df2c6023a173d24a85a8c4cc04e6717f001fe322 status:approved message:approved

    We'll investigate if there's no regression in 4.5.2, we anyway release 4.6 in next couple of days so if it's not working as expected it will be fixed !

    I updated RhodeCode to 4.6.0. I use this API:
    curl http://<ip>:<port>/_admin/api -X POST -H 'content-type:text/plain' --data-binary '{"id":1,
    "auth_token":"<token>","method":"comment_commit", "args":{"apiuser":"","repoid":"<repo_name>","commit_id":"<id>","message":"set status","status":"approved"}}'

    I get answer:
        "id": 1,
        "error": null,
        "result": {
            "status_change": "approved",
            "success": true,
            "msg": "Commented on commit `<some_id>` for repository `<repo_name>`"

    I see new comment for commit_id, but in web interface "Commit status:" not changed.

    maybe there are other votes on this commit preventing it being approved ? The aproval is voting, and there must be all votes to get a final review status ?

    The votes are other comments. Aren't there maybe other comments made on this commits that are not approved ?

    Please consider joining our Slack community channel under . Get access to our development team as well as community members always willing to help.

    Maybe we could discuss this issue, there's no way we can reproduce this and it works fine in tests, and on our test instances for postgres and sqlite

    We use sqlite.
    I can`t join to Slack: "There was a connection problem, please try again."

    Thanks for help. Reason: in commit_id param of comment_commit method need full hash (40 symbols) value. I used small hash (12 symbols).
