What this article covers:

  • Fields that can be synced and used in rules

  • Customization options

  • Limitations and compatibility

  • Is there an embedded version of this integration?

Synced fields

Here are the fields you can currently sync with Trello, whether they can be used in two-way flows, as well as whether you can use them in rules or not.

Most fields can be synced both ways. This means changes in one tool will affect the other and vice-versa. You can also edit a flow (or a specific field mapping) so that changes only go from one tool to the other and not back.

Customization options

Our GitHub integration supports a number of customization settings.

GitHub marketplace support

There are two ways to use Unito's GitHub integration. You can either go through the standard authorization process through our standalone website, or you can go through GitHub's marketplace. The latter has a quicker authorization process, and you can choose with repositories you want Unito access instead of needing to provide blanket access.

Open-source repositories

You can sync open-source repositories with your other work management tool of choice. If you want to do so, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Assignees will only sync if they also exist in the other tool you've connected.

  • Unito considers anyone commenting or assigned to an issue in GitHub as an active user. Have a lot of open-source collaborators? Get in touch with us by clicking on the chat bubble!

GitHub On-Premise Enterprise support

If you're using GitHub's On-Premise Enterprise solution, you can still use Unito's integration. Note that some additional setup steps may be required.

Prefix task title with issue number

When syncing GitHub to other work management tools, you can have the GitHub issue added as a prefix to the task's title in your other tools.

Limitations and other things to keep in mind

We’re constantly looking to better support Jira’s growing list of features, fields, and use-cases. Here are a few limitations you should be aware of:

  • Subtasks and checklists can't be synced by default since GitHub only supports parent tasks. That said, there is a workaround to achieve a similar result. Here's how it's done in Asana.

  • We don't support GitHub projects. Issues connected to both a repo and a project will continue to sync, but you can't select a GitHub project as a block of work.

  • GitHub labels can't be mapped with all other fields. It'll only work with similar fields, like tags in Asana or labels in Trello.

Things to keep in mind

Here are a few things to keep in mind when using our GitHub integration:

  • Unito needs certain read & write permissions in order to work. You can get a full breakdown of these permissions here.

  • In order for on-premise GitHub accounts to connect to Unito, it needs to be accessible via the internet. If that isn't the case, please read our guide to set this up, or contact us if you’re not sure how to proceed!
