Assigning GitHub Code Reviews to PullRequest

ME
Last updated last month

The following instructions pertain to specifically to repositories hosted in GitHub. For Bitbucket support, click here.

NOTICE: Code reviews for connected repositories can now be requested from the PullRequest dashboard. We will continue to support assigning code reviews based on the presence of "[pr]" or "[pullrequest]" in the pull request's title, but this no longer necessary.

Please note if you're an Unlimited service client there is no need to assign code reviews to PullRequest using the method below. All of your repositories' pull requests will automatically be assigned. Email hello@pullrequest.com if you're interested in our Unlimited service.

Step 1:

Make sure the GitHub PullRequest app has been added to the GitHub organization that contains the repositories you require for code review.

You can verify PullRequest has been installed and added by checking here.

Step 2:

Log in to PullRequest.com and select the appropriate GitHub Organization and Repository from the selector at the top of the screen. Make sure Reviews is selected from the sidebar menu.

If the GitHub Organization you need to request a review for is missing from the drop-down, follow this guide.

Step 3:

Click the Request Review button on any of the code reviews you need to assign to PullRequest.

Once assigned, the pull request's status will change to Review job created. Once a reviewer has been selected and has started work, the status will change to Review in progress. Once a PullRequest reviewer has submitted a review, the status will change to Review complete.
