Module Version: v1.0.1   Source   Latest Release: App-GitHooks-Plugin-MatchBranchTicketID-v1.0.2


App::GitHooks::Plugin::MatchBranchTicketID - Detect discrepancies between the ticket ID specified by the branch name and the one in the commit message.


App::GitHooks::Plugin::PrependTicketID allows pulling ticket IDs from the branch name. This way, if you're committing a lot, having a proper branch name can save you a lot of time.

That said, you sometimes need to commit using a different ticket ID than what the branch specifies. In order to prevent typos, this plugin will detect if the ticket ID specified in the commit message doesn't match the ticket ID infered from the branch name, and ask you to confirm that you want to proceed forward.


Version 1.0.1


This plugin supports the following options in the main section of your .githooksrc file.

        project_prefixes = OPS, DEV, TEST
        extract_ticket_id_from_branch = /^($project_prefixes\d+)/
        normalize_branch_ticket_id = s/^(.*?)(\d+)$/\U$1-$2/
        extract_ticket_id_from_commit = /^($project_prefixes-\d+|--): /


The list of valid ticket prefixes.

        project_prefixes = OPS, DEV, TEST


A regular expression with one capturing group that will extract the ticket ID from a branch name.

        extract_ticket_id_from_branch = /^($project_prefixes\d+)/

In the example above, if a branch is named dev1293_my_new_feature, the regular expression will identify dev1293 as the ticket ID corresponding to that branch.

Note that:


A replacement expression to normalize the ticket ID extracted with extract_ticket_id_from_branch.

        normalize_branch_ticket_id = s/^(.*?)(\d+)$/\U$1-$2/

In the example above, dev1293_my_new_feature gave dev1293, which is then normalized as DEV-1293.


A regular expression with one capturing group that will extract the ticket ID from a commit message.

        extract_ticket_id_from_commit = /^($project_prefixes-\d+|--): /

Note that:



Code to execute as part of the commit-msg hook.

  my $success = App::GitHooks::Plugin::MatchBranchTicketID->run_commit_msg();
