We’re excited to announce that our GitLab integration is now live! The Shortcut integration supports both GitLab’s SaaS offering, GitLab.com, and the self-managed offering, GitLab (9.5 or higher).
Now you’ll be able to associate merge requests, branches, and commits from a GitLab Project to a Shortcut Story to save you time and facilitate easier collaboration throughout your organization.
Reduce context switching between tools
Similar to our GitHub and Bitbucket Cloud integrations, you can use the GitLab integration to reduce the number of status meetings, daily email follow-ups, and copy-pasting tasks from one tool to another. Sync work in GitLab projects to the Shortcut Stories you are working on without leaving your command line in the following ways:
1. Stay in your workflow with specially formatted commit messages. Associate a commit to one or multiple Stories for insight into work in progress, right in your Stories.
2. Work more efficiently with branch naming conventions to automatically connect your branch to a Story and track the status of the request for that branch. When a branch is associated with a Story, you can open a merge request from Shortcut to make updates seamlessly.
Improve visibility with automation
Automatically sync the flow of information between GitLab and Shortcut with the integration so your organization can gain better insight into the status of work. You’ll be able to do so in the following ways:
2. Automatically update the Story Workflow States while working in GitLab using event handlers.
