Manually marking a commit as a pair commit allows you to ensure that both developers are getting credit for their work on the commit.
In order to manually mark a commit as a pair programmed commit you will need access to the following permissions:
- Manage Commits
- Work Log
Additionally, your group programming settings will need to be turned on. Learn how to turn on your group programming settings.
Marking a commit as a pair commit
Once you have all the necessary permissions and your pair programming settings have been turned on, you can now manually mark any commit as a paired commit.
- Navigate to the Operational reports and click on Work log.
Locate the commit that you want to mark as a group commit. Click on the commit, then click the three dots icon to open the drop down menu. Click Mark as a group commit.
In the modal, search for and select the user you want to add as a pair programmer to this commit. Remove contributors by clicking the x next to the name or clicking Clear all.
Click Update once you have added all the necessary users to the commit.
Success! You have manually parked this commit as a group commit. You will see a success banner. The commit now appears as a square when the Group filter is selected. The authors of the commit have been changed to match all pair programmers on the commit.
