Pivotal Tracker is lightweight, agile software development tool by Pivotal Labs. This integration allows you to connect a repository to a your project in Pivotal Tracker. Once connected, you can invoke actions on your user stories from your commit messages.

How to setup integration

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

Your token can be found on the profile page under API Token in Pivotal Tracker.
