Github Integration


This integration will allow you to use GetHub commit comments to update bugs

This will cause any commit comments to be added to bugs references by the comment. E.g. the commit comment “This fixes bug 123” will cause “This fixes bug 123” to be added as a comment to bug 123.

You must configure both Github and devZing to make this work.

Using

In daily use just include the keyword “bug” next to the Bugzilla defect ID you want to update in the commit message. Remember that the Github webhooks aren’t executed until you push your changes and that there can be several commits in a single push. Every commit message in a push will be evaluated so you can update 1 or 100 bugs in a single push.
