How to integrate GitLab with Zepel?

Sometimes your dev team can merge and close a pull request, but forget to update progress. That can leave you with outdated information.

When you connect your GitLab repository to your Zepel Squad, you can easily:

  • link a Feature to a new branch,
  • link Items to commit,
  • link Items to pull requests,
  • link a bug to a branch, and
  • automate developer updates in Zepel

In this article, we’ll see how you can set up your Zepel account to integrate with your GitLab repository.
