With Unito, you can seamlessly collaborate with your IT and development teams who live in GitLab without them ever having to use Zendesk! Here's how these two tools come together with Unito.
Best use case
What is synced?
Note: after the initial sync, the Zendesk ticket description cannot be updated due to its read-only first comment nature. Any changes on the synced task description or fields of the description footer cannot be reflected in Zendesk.
A field you'd like to sync is not listed? Contact us, we may already support it through a manual configuration.
What is not synced?
Is there a feature you'd really like? Contact us, we prioritize based on user requests.
Here are all the available options for Zendesk and GitLab:
Sync Zendesk public comments
By default, only internal notes will sync but you do have the option to sync the public replies also. Here's how it works.
Filter by tag or label
Unito will sync all tickets and issues by default but you can customize your workflow by syncing just some of them (complete guide).
Filter by ticket type
You can filter which type of tickets you want to be synced to GitLab (complete guide).
You can choose to sync only from Zendesk to GitLab or GitLab to Zendesk. Here is how it works.
Map your GitLab and Zendesk users
Sync tickets/issues already closed
Unito will automatically sync open tickets or issues. But here is how to also sync closed tickets and issues prior to the sync creation.
