How can we improve Review Assistant?

API for all basic interactions

There are over 60 requests for some API level access to the product. There are a ton of standard and custom issue tracking systems out there that could tie into your product. In our case we would love to tie TFS check in events to create and update reviews automatically. This seems like a major missing feature compared to a lot of other products in the space. Yours would work best if the API was exposed. People have been asking for over 2 years.

The command line is clunky and insuffiecient, or at least not documented well enough to be useful.

Similar requests are: Ability to create a new review via an SvnHook, Provide API to allow integration with Jenkins or similar CI platforms, create an API to view statistics.(Reviews, Issues ..)

        7 years later, this feature is in the top 5 but ignored (although it doesn't seems complicated to implement), please guys, don't just abandon the product !

        We are about to start hacking the database since we don't have it. It would be really easy to create a bare-bones JSON API over this--would you consider it?

        We are looking for similar functionality to support automatic creation of reviews (and possibly closure of reviews) in response to creation/acceptance of merge requests in git.

        Either interface works for me, although if it's command line I would not want to have to license our svn server. I would like to provide author (via username), revision number and initial description.

        I would also like the ability to just add a revision and/or comment to and existing review.

        Give me a command line or API that I can call to create a new review where the reviewer is preset in the SvnHook and I can get Revision to add, Author and Comment from the SvnHook.

        Basically I want to automatically create a Code Review for every commit. I've looked around and don't believe it's currently possible.
