Pulls

The Pulls API allows you to list, view, edit, create, and even merge pull requests.

About the Pulls API

The Pull Request API allows you to list, view, edit, create, and even merge pull requests. Comments on pull requests can be managed via the Issue Comments API.

Every pull request is an issue, but not every issue is a pull request. For this reason, "shared" actions for both features, like manipulating assignees, labels and milestones, are provided within the Issues API.

Custom media types for pull requests

These are the supported media types for pull requests.

application/vnd.github.VERSION.raw+json
application/vnd.github.VERSION.text+json
application/vnd.github.VERSION.html+json
application/vnd.github.VERSION.full+json
application/vnd.github.VERSION.diff
application/vnd.github.VERSION.patch

For more information, see "Custom media types."

If a diff is corrupt, contact your enterprise owner. Include the repository name and pull request ID in your message.

Pull Requests have these possible link relations:

Create a pull request

Works with GitHub Apps

Draft pull requests are available in public repositories with GitHub Free and GitHub Free for organizations, GitHub Pro, and legacy per-repository billing plans, and in public and private repositories with GitHub Team and GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see GitHub's products in the GitHub Help documentation.

To open or update a pull request in a public repository, you must have write access to the head or the source branch. For organization-owned repositories, you must be a member of the organization that owns the repository to open or update a pull request.

You can create a new pull request.

This endpoint triggers notifications. Creating content too quickly using this endpoint may result in secondary rate limiting. See "Secondary rate limits" and "Dealing with secondary rate limits" for details.

Get a pull request

Works with GitHub Apps

Draft pull requests are available in public repositories with GitHub Free and GitHub Free for organizations, GitHub Pro, and legacy per-repository billing plans, and in public and private repositories with GitHub Team and GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see GitHub's products in the GitHub Help documentation.

Lists details of a pull request by providing its number.

When you get, create, or edit a pull request, GitHub AE creates a merge commit to test whether the pull request can be automatically merged into the base branch. This test commit is not added to the base branch or the head branch. You can review the status of the test commit using the mergeable key. For more information, see "Checking mergeability of pull requests".

The value of the mergeable attribute can be true, false, or null. If the value is null, then GitHub AE has started a background job to compute the mergeability. After giving the job time to complete, resubmit the request. When the job finishes, you will see a non-null value for the mergeable attribute in the response. If mergeable is true, then merge_commit_sha will be the SHA of the test merge commit.

The value of the merge_commit_sha attribute changes depending on the state of the pull request. Before merging a pull request, the merge_commit_sha attribute holds the SHA of the test merge commit. After merging a pull request, the merge_commit_sha attribute changes depending on how you merged the pull request:

  • If merged as a merge commit, merge_commit_sha represents the SHA of the merge commit.
  • If merged via a squash, merge_commit_sha represents the SHA of the squashed commit on the base branch.
  • If rebased, merge_commit_sha represents the commit that the base branch was updated to.
