Commit message referencing issue is not mentioned in issue and is not automatically closed

I have a local installation running CE (omnibus package) version 9.2.2 and doing a commit to my default branch with the message “Fixes #1” does not result in the commit being mentioned in the issue, and it is not closed.

What should I be checking here?

If I mention an issue in another issue’s comment section, that is seen on the mentioned issue.

I tried restarting gitlab and also the server.

Thank you for your help!

Any ideas? Still having this problem.

I have used “fixes #1”, and it works well.

Maybe, it’s case study
