Pull request templates

Prophecy supports opening pull requests on your external Git provider to merge development branches to the base branch of a project's remote repository. The below sections mention how to configure your repository to use this feature.

Configuring PR templates

During the PR creation process, Prophecy will redirect users to their external Git provider based on the template defined in the Advanced > Pull Request Template tab in the project's settings.

PR template Advanced tab

The PR template URL requires two variables which are used to build a URL string. The {{source}} variable represents the active development branch, and the {{destination}} variable represents the base branch to which the feature/development branches need to be merged to , eg. main.

Example template for a Github repository:{{destination}}...{{source}}?expand=1

An example pull request URL generated from the above template for merging a branch named feature to branch main would look like:

The pull request template would be automatically generated and populated in the Advanced > Pull Request Template settings depending on your configured external Git provider. This auto-generation is currently being done for Github, Github Enterprise, Gitlab, Gitlab Enterprise, BitBucket and Azure Devops repositories. Users will be able to edit the autogenerated templates as well.

Raising pull requests

If the pull request template is configured correctly and enabled, users will be able to raise pull requests during the Merge step of the Commit > Pull > Merge > Release process. Clicking on the Open Pull Request button would redirect the user the external Git provider's pull request generation page.
