Starting today, you can now reference and close tickets from within your GitHub pull requests. To make it work, you will need to link your Github account with Sprint.ly and mention an item using our SCM command syntax. We’ll update the ticket with a link back to the relevant pull request. When that branch gets merged, we’ll mark any closed tickets as complete.
For folks who use a branch-based git workflow, pull requests represent an important event in the lifecycle of an item which is why we have made them first class objects in Sprint.ly. By embedding Sprint.ly into your existing workflow we hope to reduce the need for process and let you focus on shipping code. We have a lot more ideas in this vein which we’re excited to start exploring. As always, if there’s something you’d like to see, please let us know!
