Manually marking a pair commit

Tags: Flow

Overview

Manually marking a commit as a pair commit allows you to ensure that both developers are getting credit for their work on the commit.

Permissions

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.

  1. Navigate to the Operational reports and click on Work log.

         

  2.  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.

  3.  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 next to the name or clicking Clear all.


  4. Click Update once you have added all the necessary users to the commit.

  5. 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.
