The day is finally here. After months of undeterred work, we are happy to announce our community that QA touch is now integrated with GitHub, a web-based hosting service for version control using Git, offering all functionalities of git as well adding many of its own, giving a clean web UI providing great visuals.
GitHub is a great way to handle and maintain code for a developer in the sense that it keeps everything organized with the ability to undo any unwanted actions. Which also allows push directly to servers so there is more consistency with that side of the transfer.
QA touch offers seamless integration with GitHub providing the best way to keep all the bugs posted in the GitHub Repository. GitHub can be integrated with QA touch in a short span of time, by following the below three steps:
- Generate the API Key (Personal Access Token) in GitHub
- Configure API Key of GitHub and the repository details
- Configure GitHub Settings
How to Generate API Key in GitHub?
You can generate the Personal Access Token from here and link the GitHub-API key in QA touch.
Step 1: Navigation (Personal Settings -> Developer Setting -> Personal Access Tokens). Click the “Generate new token” button.
Step 2 : Once the new token is generated, enter that token description and select the repo scope full control permission. After which, you can submit the button.
Step 3: Once that has been submitted, you will have personal access token generated successfully which should be utilized for further usage.
