Critical to resolving a vulnerability is the handoff to one's engineering team. With GitHub being one of the most used developer tools, we want to make that handoff easy.

Set up a GitHub integration by following the steps below.

  1. Go to your program’s Settings.

    First, navigate to your Program Settings and select the Integrations tab.

  5. Once you have the integration setup and enabled, you can go to any submission and “Push to GitHub”.


    Clicking the link opens a modal providing a link to open the corresponding issue in GitHub. Click that.

    push to Crowdcontrol

  6. Open issue in GitHub. The Submission contents are filled within the Issue form, enabling you to further edit it before submitting. git-open-issue

  7. Once the issue is saved, grab the ID from the Issue page (or the link) and go back to Crowdcontrol to save it.


    Fill in the ID number within the modal form, saving it within Crowdcontrol.


    This makes it easy to access the GitHub issue within Crowdcontrol for further updates.


  8. You can unlink the GitHub issue from the Submissions page.

    To unlink a GitHub issue, click the red bin icon adjacent to the linked GitHub issue in the Integrations section.


    Click the Unlink button to confirm unlinking the issue.
