Closing an issue

You can close an issue when bugs are fixed, feedback is acted on, or to show that work is not planned.

Anyone can close an issue they opened.

Repository owners, collaborators on repositories owned by a personal account, and people with triage permissions or greater on repositories owned by an organization can close issues opened by others. Los miembros de una empresa con usuarios administrados solo pueden hacer cambios en los repositorios que sean parte de ella.

Note: You can also close issues automatically with keywords in pull requests and commit messages. Para obtener más información, consulta la sección "Vincular una solicitud de extracción a un informe de problemas".

  1. En GitHub.com, visita la página principal del repositorio.

  2. Debajo del nombre de tu repositorio, da clic en Informe de problemas.
