I need a little help, if someone has a few moments. I’m a little confused about this plugin, so some guidance for a semi-techie person would be appreciated.
- We use github for our repositories for our site’s development. We use Discourse for our tech support regarding that site.
- There is an option for
github linkback enabled: “Link GitHub issues back to forum discussions”
- This is exactly what I want to do: Link Github’s reported issues to the forums (privately, preferably, currently I’m just linking the issues in a whisper on the reported post.)
I’m not interested in pull requests nor badges at this time. This is primarily for internal tech support. Our current basic flow is users report issues to me in the forums, I hang tickets, dev moves from there.
How do I do that? I have figured out how to generate an access token, but that’s about all I’ve figured out. The instructions don’t tell me what to do once I’ve enabled the appropriate functionality. Our repository is private, which may affect this.
A little handholding is basically requested for this (or a “no, this plugin doesn’t do what you need it to” as the case may be.)
