Connecting Pivotal Tracker with GitHub

GitHub with Pivotal Tracker is the killer agile combination.
With the just release Tracker v3 API update it is now easy to connect them.

You only have to configure GitHub Post-Receive Hooks so you can automatically deliver stories/bugs by providing the Tracker ID in the commit statement like: Fixes #TrackerId

How to set it up:

  1. Create a Pivotal Tracker API token: Login to PT -> My Profile -> Create New Token
  2. GitHub -> Project -> Admin -> Service Hooks -> Post-Receive URLs
  3. Paste https://www.pivotaltracker.com/services/v3/github_commits?token=YOUR_TOKEN_FROM_STEP_1

Now that was easy!
