Searching for Commits

Tower allows you to filter commit listings by various criteria.

In the search field on the top right of the window, click the magnifying glass icon and select your filter criteria of choice.

  • Message
    Filters by searching the commit messages (both subject and body).

  • Commit Hash
    Searches the commits' SHA1 hashes. You don't have to enter a full 40-character hash - but please note that characters have to be entered from the beginning of the hash (not somewhere in the middle of the string).
    Tower will only return a search result if it finds a single unique commit item with this hash.

  • Author
    Filters the listing by author information. Both the author's name and his email address information are searched.

  • Committer
    Filters the listing by committer information. Both the committer's name and his email address information are searched.

  • File
    Filters by only showing commits that changed certain files in your project.
    See File History for a detailed description of this option.
