What is the recommended workflow in Gitlab?
Specifically going from an issue to a code commit on master.
Right now, this is my approach but I’m interested in hearing how others are working with Gitlab.
- Start with an issue
- Create a branch from this issue inside of the web interface
- Copy/paste the branch name and pull that branch locally
- Edit the code
- Commit & Push to gitlab
- Create a merge request
- Accept the merge request
I find it annoying that I have to create a branch on the web interface, then copy/paste that branch name to pull it locally in Visual Studio Code.
It would also be nice if a Merge Request is made automatically when commiting to that new branch with a commit message like “Closes #XXXX”.
Any suggestions for an improvement to this workflow?
