Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to find commit in github by CL# number?

Probably very noob question but... I need to find CL# 3565946 commit in github Unreal repository. How I would go about it? Simple search didn't give any results. Thank you in advance.

PS. CL stands for ChangeList?

Product Version: UE Github Master branch

I thought it's a trivial question that most people using source would be able to answer. Or did I ask something weird? Hope someone would share the knowledge, or at least point where to look for :)

CL numbers relate to Perforce changelist numbers from Epic's Perforce, which licensees get access to. Unfortunately right now it's not easy to get a GitHub commit from a CL# as everything is merged to the GitHub accessible branches in huge monolithic commits. I believe this is something Epic were looking to address at some point in time.
