I have been trying to figure out how to move issues between To Do and I_n Progress_ automatically. I read that this is possible if you use the following format for your branch names.
[issue number]-[issue name]-[branch purpose]
So that would look like this:
But when I create the branch like that and push it to the remote, the issue Initial Setup #1 does not get moved from To Do to In Progress automatically. I have also tried several other ways of naming my branches:
I have also tried putting the # at the front of the branch name like this
But when I do that, git complains. So I tried creating the branch _1-initial-setup _and then pushing to remote as initial-setup-#1 and this time git complained because it said the remote did not exist.
I am really confused guys. I have set my project up to use automation but I can’t get it to work. Can any of you help me out with the correct way to automatically move issues to the correct project colums, so that I don’t have to login to github every time and do it manually.
Surly there is a way of doing this based upon branches and issue numbers, isnt there? I have already read all the stuff about configuring automation for project boards and the related content and I have searched Google for the answer - but to no avail.
You guys are my last hope of figuring this out.
