Linking commits to work items

After you configure the integration, you can link Git commits to IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) work items.

About this task

The work item references are extracted from the commit comment (when the commits are pushed). The work item references use a specific format: the comment contains certain keywords followed by the work item numbers. The format is keyword wi-num.

The supported keywords are task, defect, bug, rtcwi, work item, and workitem. The following examples are text fragments that are valid work item references when they occur in commit comments:

fix workitem 123 and test
resolve bug 123


Specify a work item in a commit comment by using one of the keywords listed above. The work item is updated to contain a link to the Git commit. For details about linking commits to work items, see Associating work items with commits.
