Three months ago I asked GH if it’s somehow possible to search pull requests by branch. It was not possible at that time.
It’s a nice surprise that they eventually implemented it… but it’s even more surprising that they e-mailed me about that! (after three months!)
You can now search for pull requests by branch name.
`is:open base:staging` will find all open pull requests that will be merged into a “staging” branch (https://github.com/search?q=is:open+base:staging)
`is:open head:feature` will find all open pull requests that want to merge code from a “feature” branch (https://github.com/search?q=is%3Aopen+head%3Afeature)
The search uses prefix matching so the entire branch name does not have to be typed into the search field. The search for `is:open head:feature` will also match a branch named “feature-api-enhancement”.
We hope you enjoy this new feature. As always, please send us an email if you have any questions.
I wonder what kind of system they use – my support request/ticket must have been linked with feature/user story.
