Integrate with GitHub Commit

This integration allows the product team to better understand what work engineers are completing in real-time. It also provides engineers a record of all of the changes that were made for a feature if there is a reason to go back and check and provides a hassle-free way to keep everyone in the loop.

This integration creates a comment in Aha! each time a feature or requirement is referenced in a GitHub commit message. Follow the simple steps below to set the integration up.

All GitHub Commit integrations are configured in Settings > Account > Integrations. You need to be an Aha! administrator to configure account integrations.

Note: When you are using Github's two factor authentication you must use their One Time Password (OTP) for applications using the API. Just put the OTP in for your username and leave the password blank. See this GitHub article for details. 

Each commit message to the Github repository will be processed. If the commit message contains the reference from an Aha! feature or requirement then the commit message will be added as a comment to the feature or requirement.
