Linking an Item to a Commit

Before you begin: Ensure that you’ve enabled the integration for Github, Bitbucket, or GitLab.


An item in Zepel can be associated to a Commit in your version control system.

A commit can be associated to an item by using the item ID

e.g. - git commit -m "made design changes to the create component [DEV-42]"

Multiple items can be associated with a commit.

e.g.- git commit -m "fixed notification bug [BB-68] [BB-76] [DEV-42]"

NOTE: If you’re using a Git client to add commits, simply add the item id within square brackets to the message to link an item to a commit. Example: Fixed notification bug [BB-76]


To find an item id:

  • Hover on any item inside your Feature/List.
  • Click on the Expand Item icon from the right side of an item.

Click on Expand Item icon

  • In the single item popup, you can either scroll down to the bottom and find the item id under Item Info or you can find the item id at the top.
