How to Enable Status Updates via Commits in GitHub and Bitbucket

Posted in: Bug reports, Product news by: Simon on:

You can now enable status updates in GitHub and Bitbucket on a per-project basis.

To do so, follow these simple steps:

Connecting Github and Bitbucket with Lean Testing:

  • Go to the project’s management page and connect your GitHub or Bitbucket account.
  • From there, select the repository and the branch you want to link to your project.

Changing bug status updates via commit messages:

The Github and Bitbucket integration allows repository committers to change bug statuses by embedding specific commands into their commit messages. You simply need to add the bug number and desired status between brackets [ ] in your commit. For example:

status updates

And voilà! That is how you enable bug status updates, and they will be updated automatically in Lean Testing.
