Updating Jixee with a commit

How to update jixee with a commit.

You can update tasks using version control. Jixee will automatically update a task with the appropriate version control data and change task properties as specified in your commit message.

Please Note: You must pass the unique Jixee ID with every commit message.

Basic Commit

A basic commit message will look like this:

jix-1032:this is my commit message

You can add advanced commit properties to a basic commit message:

jix-1032:this is my commit message [s:c]

Advanced Commit

An advanced commit message can contain man more properties than a basic commit:

[id:jix-1032] [m:this is my commit message] [s:o]
