We are in a process of transitioning our company towards a full automation development process (CICD), and one of the main things was to start using GIT (GitHub), instead of the SVN (SubVersion).
We were amazed how easy the process was, in terms of connecting Orcanos system to the GitHub
We are using Zapier for the integration, but since the API of the systems is simple, you can do it using webservices.
In this article, we will show the steps of connecting both systems.
Check it out:
Step 1: Add CICD section to your defect and task
Step 2: Define integration ZAP from Orcanos to GitHub, for Defect, and for Task
They both act the same. when adding defect or task in Orcanos, it will be added to GitHub as an Issue
Once issue is added – we will update Orcanos with GitHub issue ID and issue URL
Now, the issue is used for working in Github, and Pull Requests will be linked to it, so you can open the Issue URL from Orcanos
And this is the connecting point from Orcanos to GitHub, that’s it
We are working with Visual Studio, so we use the GitHub issue to connect the Push o Orcanos
You can now customize it to your needs, such as adding tag for defect or task indication, we concatenate the item id from Orcanos to the GitHub issue name
