Integrating with Sifter

Beanstalk can integrate with your Sifter account, allowing you to easily manage your Sifter tickets.

How to set up integration 

In order to integrate Sifter with Beanstalk, you need to enable Sifter integration within your repository. To do this, go to your Repository, then Settings → Integration → Sifter. To get started with the setup, click on Sifter icon, and then on Activate integration button inside the page. 

Enter your Sifter account domain and the Access Key you created in your Sifter account.

Access Keys can be created by logging into your Sifter account and going to My Profile -> Access Keys and selecting one of the keys you created.

On the next step you can choose the Sifter project that will be associated with the Beanstalk repository. You can only manage one project per repository.

Check and make sure everything is correct, and on the last step click Activate. You will be able to change your settings or deactivate later.

How to use the integration

Once the integration is active you can add keywords to your commit messages that will update tickets in Sifter. For example:

New feature is implemented and tested [#15]<br>

The [#15] will add this commit message as a comment to ticket #15. As well, Sifter will include a link to the changeset from the comment's timestamp.

Extended tags

You can use additional tags to edit or manipulate cases as well. For example:

New feature is implemented and tested [#15 assign:chris state:resolved]<br>

This commit message will set the responsible user and change the state of the ticket in Sifter. Assign option matches by username in Sifter account. Check out the list of example tags that can be used:

Example Sifter tags

  • # - Associated a ticket with a commit.
  • state - Change status of the ticket. Can be either open, reopened, resolved, and closed. 
  • assign - Assign a ticket to a specific person.
  • unassign - Unassign a ticket

Please Note: Only the account owner and admins are allowed to activate integrations.
