GitHub Integration

GitHub is a version control platform that allows you to track changes to your codebase, flag bugs and issues for follow-up, and manage your product's build process. 

With the integration with GitHub, you can supercharge GitHub's task-management capabilities and discuss builds with your team before they enter your codebase 👍🏽

Adding the integration to your workflow

Step 1

To add an Integration, go to the board you want to create an Integration for and click on the Integration button, located on the upper right of your screen. 
Important: Only the admin of the Github account will have access to set up the integration.

Once you've opened the integrations page, you'll see all the wonderful apps we integrate with :) Go ahead and click "GitHub".


Step 2

Connect your GitHub account by clicking "Connect to GitHub" and then logging in with your GitHub credentials. 


Step 3

Select the integration you want to add to your board. The GitHub actions supported by are:

  • When tagging a commit in this repository, create a pulse in this group with this prefix.
  • When a new pull request is opened in repository, create a pulse in group.
  • When a pulse ID is mentioned in a commit in this repository, create an update to the relevant pulse. 
  • When push to master branch of repository, create pulse in group.
  • When issue created in this repository, create a pulse in this group
  • When a new pulse is created, create an issue in this repository


 Step 4

When setting your integration, you can select which data will be mapped into each column:

When selecting which data will be mapped into each column, the integration column will be added automatically with the tip that will explain the column purpose, to maintain the connection between the parameters in both apps:

Simple Use Case: Using to log Github Issues

With the GitHub integration, you can supercharge your Sprint Planning board by syncing it with your codebase in GitHub! This way, you can communicate about specific issues in while still having them tracked in GitHub for easy access. 

First, add the "When a new pulse is created, create an issue in this repository" to your board. 


Then, set up a Sprint Planning board with each pulse as a bug or feature that your team is working on. 



As you add more tasks to your team's sprints, they will also appear in GitHub!
