Auto-merge

The ability to configure automatic PR merges can greatly unblock developers that typically wait for hours, or even days, to receive a LGTM review.

Since not every PR needs the same review process, using the semantic features of Reviewpad, you can configure many scenarios where auto-merge seems natural.

Out of the box, Reviewpad supports a merge action which can be used in multiple scenarios.

Auto-merge based on file properties

api-version: reviewpad.com/v3.x

labels:
  ship:
    description: Ship mode
    # color is the hexadecimal color code for the label, without the leading #.
    color: "76dbbe"

rules:
  - name: changesToMDFiles
    kind: patch
    description: Patch only contains changes to files with extension .md
    spec: $hasFileExtensions([".md"])

workflows:
  - name: ship
    description: Ship process - bypass the review and merge with rebase
    if:
      - rule: changesToMDFiles
    then:
      - $addLabel("ship")
      - $merge()

Auto-merge small PRs

api-version: reviewpad.com/v3.x

labels:
  ship:
    description: Ship mode
    color: "76dbbe"

rules:
  - name: isSmallPatch
    kind: patch
    description: Patch has less than 90 changes and 6 files
    spec: $size() < 90 && $fileCount() <= 5

workflows:
  - name: ship
    description: Ship process - bypass the review and merge with rebase
    if:
      - rule: isSmallPatch
    then:
      - $addLabel("ship")
      - $merge("rebase")

Auto-merge non-critical PRs

The hasAnnotation built-in can be used to configure powerful auto-merges. See a more in-depth example of the usage of hasAnnotation in the automated labelling section.

api-version: reviewpad.com/v3.x

labels:
  ship:
    description: Ship mode
    color: "76dbbe"

rules:
  - name: notCriticalChanges
    kind: patch
    description: Patch does not touch critical code
    spec: '!$hasAnnotation("critical")'

workflows:
  - name: ship
    description: Ship process - bypass the review and merge with rebase
    if:
      - rule: notCriticalChanges
    then:
      - $addLabel("ship")
      - $merge("rebase")
