About pull requests

Pull requests let you tell others about changes you've pushed to a branch in a repository on GitHub Enterprise Server. Once a pull request is opened, you can discuss and review the potential changes with collaborators and add follow-up commits before your changes are merged into the base branch.

About pull requests

Note: When working with pull requests, keep the following in mind:

  • If you're working in the shared repository model, we recommend that you use a topic branch for your pull request. While you can send pull requests from any branch or commit, with a topic branch you can push follow-up commits if you need to update your proposed changes.
  • When pushing commits to a pull request, don't force push. Force pushing changes the repository history and can corrupt your pull request. If other collaborators branch the project before a force push, the force push may overwrite commits that collaborators based their work on.

You can create pull requests on GitHub.com, with GitHub Desktop, in Codespaces, on 手机版 GitHub, and when using GitHub CLI.

After initializing a pull request, you'll see a review page that shows a high-level overview of the changes between your branch (the compare branch) and the repository's base branch. You can add a summary of the proposed changes, review the changes made by commits, add labels, milestones, and assignees, and @mention individual contributors or teams. For more information, see "Creating a pull request."

Once you've created a pull request, you can push commits from your topic branch to add them to your existing pull request. These commits will appear in chronological order within your pull request and the changes will be visible in the "Files changed" tab.

Other contributors can review your proposed changes, add review comments, contribute to the pull request discussion, and even add commits to the pull request.

After you're happy with the proposed changes, you can merge the pull request. If you're working in a shared repository model, you create a pull request and you, or someone else, will merge your changes from your feature branch into the base branch you specify in your pull request. For more information, see "Merging a pull request."

如果需要对仓库进行状态检查,必须通过所需的状态检查后,您才可将分支合并到受保护分支。 更多信息请参阅“关于受保护分支”。

您可以将拉取请求链接到议题,以便显示正在进行修复并在有人合并拉取请求时自动关闭议题。 更多信息请参阅“将拉取请求链接到议题”。


  • To toggle between collapsing and expanding all outdated review comments in a pull request, hold down optionAltAlt and click Show outdated or Hide outdated. For more shortcuts, see "Keyboard shortcuts."
  • You can squash commits when merging a pull request to gain a more streamlined view of changes. For more information, see "About pull request merges."

You can visit your dashboard to quickly find links to recently updated pull requests you're working on or subscribed to. For more information, see "About your personal dashboard."

Draft pull requests

拉取请求草稿可用于具有组织的 GitHub Free 和传统的按仓库结算方案的公共仓库,以及具有 GitHub Team、GitHub Enterprise Server 2.17+、 和 GitHub Enterprise Cloud 的公共和私有仓库。

When you create a pull request, you can choose to create a pull request that is ready for review or a draft pull request. Draft pull requests cannot be merged, and code owners are not automatically requested to review draft pull requests. For more information about creating a draft pull request, see "Creating a pull request" and "Creating a pull request from a fork."

准备获取对拉取请求的反馈时,可将拉取请求草稿标记为可供审查。 将拉取请求标记为可供审查将要求任何代码所有者进行审查。 You can convert a pull request to a draft at any time. For more information, see "Changing the stage of a pull request."

Differences between commits on compare and pull request pages

The compare and pull request pages use different methods to calculate the diff for changed files:

  • Compare pages show the diff between the tip of the head ref and the current common ancestor (that is, the merge base) of the head and base ref.
  • Pull request pages show the diff between the tip of the head ref and the common ancestor of the head and base ref at the time when the pull request was created. Consequently, the merge base used for the comparison might be different.
