Linking an Item to a Pull Request

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


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

When the pull request is created, the item ID has to be entered in the pull request description in the format [ItemID].

e.g. - [DEV-42]

Multiple item IDs can be entered in the pull request’s description to link a pull request to multiple items.

e.g. - [DEV-42] [DEV-43] [DEV-44]
