GitHub Integration

Video Tutorial:


Text Description:

To activate the GitHub integration click on the ( i ) button in the top bar of your project board and select Manage in the menu. In the dialog that appears, switch to the Features tab.


Now click on the green Add button next to the GitHub integration to start connecting your project to GitHub.

Please click on Authorize your GitHub in order to allow modifying tasks right from GitHub.

After choosing a repository you can complete tasks and checklist items just by adding the MeisterTask task token (the alphanumeric code in the task URL) to your commit messages in GitHub. Checklist items are referenced by number, starting with 1.

You will see different examples on how to add tasks in the integration dialog.

Github Examples

Please note: Make sure all people have the same email addresses on MeisterTask and GitHub. You need admin rights on the repository to install the integration.

Common Problems:

If you set up the GitHub integration in MeisterTask successfully, but you still can't get it to work, you might be sending the commit messages with the wrong email address.

Please make sure that the email address used for the commit messages is the same as the email address you're using in MeisterTask.
