How to display git commits in editor

I have created a new editor presentation from scratch but I'd need to display the connected git commits (change set). I can't seem to do it with a reference presentation - how does it work?

I can see the Git Commit Links in the history but not with any presentation I tried. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

I have also already thought about the git commits maybe not displaying in the editor because I added the presentation after I linked the work item to a commit - but that shouldn't really be happening, right? I can see the links in the history so I am guessing I am using the wrong presentation - I just don't have any idea which one to use

How did you integration RTC and Git, and what's your RTC version?

If you integrate RTC and Git properly, you should see the link to Git Commit from "Links" Non-Attribute-based Presentation. However you could not see the information from History as the create/delete links operation is not recorded in work item history.

Ilona Krammer commented Nov 21 '16, 1:01 a.m.

We are using RTC 6.0.2

The thing is that I do not want to display the Links section the way it is provided by RTC - in fact we are using an empty process template so it isn't even available.

We activated the link history to be recorded that's why things also appear in our history.

With RTC 6.0.5 the Git Commits actually is now selectable in the links section so only Git commits are displayed

I cannot mark this as the correct answer - but it does work. Maybe someone else can select it..?

Hi Ilona

In case you are still working on this, you could add a Non-Attribute Presentation "Links" to any tab and the Commits should be listed there.

 Hi Shubjit, I can not find the link type for GIT change set links in the choice list. Am I missing something?

Hi Ralph

Yes you are right, It is not listed and we cannot manually create the link to a Git Commit as well. However, the Git Commit link seems to show up only in the Link Attribute. Maybe we should raise a workitem to development to control this link type ..

I don't see my git commits under the links non-attribute presentation.  I see them in the history, but that's it.  Thoughts?

Neal McKegney commented Jan 04 '17, 2:11 p.m.

 I managed to resolve my issue.  I removed the linkTypeFilter property from my process and the links now appear properly

Ilona Krammer commented Jan 09 '17, 2:36 a.m. | edited Jan 09 '17, 2:43 a.m.

removing the linkTypeFilter works for me too - but I only want the git commits displayed, nothing else. How can I do that?

EDIT: Plus, I don't want to display the dropdown to add links, I really just want the git commits
