hey guys,

  1. there should be a clear FAQ entry on the exact syntax of setting ticket states. Right now one confusing issue is that on the ticket pages it's called "status" but aparently in the commit message it needs to be state:...
  2. I'm having trouble making it work: in I added [[#1] state:resolved] but my ticket state did not actually change. I had to set it manually:

I'm doing all of this through the github post-push-hooks.

    Sorry for the delay. Looks like you've added double [[]]. Can you show me where on the ticket page it's called "status"? I'm seeing "state" everywhere, but I could be overlooking a spot where we missed it. We should definitely have an FAQ for this.

    In the meantime, check out this article. It's focused on GitHub, but it applies to commit messages in general:

    bram.dejong+lighthouse's Avatar mentions the double [[ ]]

    a copy-paste: "New feature is implemented and tested [[#15](/discussions/problems/15 "Discussion #15")") tagged:committed responsible:rick milestone:"Launch" state:resolved]"

    "status" is used on the ticket page, see the attached file...

    Thanks for the link, that does give a nice overview.

    Glad that pointed you in the right direction. In the meantime, you've spotted some rough spots and missing things in our documentation that we need to update. I'll create a ticket to update the docs. Thanks!
