What is MyRepoBot?

MyRepoBot is a bot that allows you to integrate with your Github, Gitlab or Bitbucket repositories. MyRepoBot works in Telegram, Discord and Google Chat. Manage your integration using simple commands to retrieve updates in repositories and get reminders about pending pull requests.

5. Choose your repository provider - Github, Gitlab, or Bitbucket.

6. You must create an access token for the app from your Github/Gitlab/Bitbucket account. Follow the instructions for the selected repo.

How do I get started in Discord?

To add the bot to Discord Server you must have Manage Server permission in the server.

Can I use MyRepoBot for self-hosted Github/Gitlab solutions?

Yes, you can use the bot for both - Self-hosted (Server) and Cloud repositories providers. However, you will have different authorization methods for Cloud and Self-hosted repository:

Why don't I see all my repositories in the list of repos in MyRepoBot when I set up notifications?

The issue may be that you don't have all needed permissions to set up notifications in some repositories.

Can I use the bot in the Telegram Channel?

No, the bot doesn't support Channels in Telegram, but you can still use it in Telegram Group.

Can I connect several repositories to the bot?

Telegram and Google Chat. You can simultaneously connect multiple repos (Github, Gitlab, or Bitbucket) types using different chats. However, you are restricted to using one account for any repo type in one chat. So you can't use Github and Gitlab accounts or two Bitbucket accounts in the same chat, for example. If you want to do so, you can create a group chat with the bot and connect the bot to another account there.

Discord. You only can use one Repository (GitHub or GitLab or Bitbucket) account per Discord server.

Can I subscribe to all repositories?

If you use an Authorization token when setting a subscription you can choose the repository you want to subscribe to or choose the option 'All repositories' to subscribe to all repositories.

If you use Manual Webhooks when setting a subscription, you must add a webhook to each repository you want to subscribe to. So, in general, you can subscribe to all repositories, but it will take more time.

What is a reminder in MyRepoBot?

Reminders are scheduled messages that you receive with a set-up frequency about Pull requests that are stuck in the open state for some time. For example, in your project group, you can set up that you want to get a reminder every day at 10 a.m. about PRs that are open for more than 2 days. Doing so can encourage your team to review them and deliver code faster.

Why don't I see all my repositories in the list of repos in MyRepoBot when I set up reminders?

The issue may be that you don't have all needed permissions to set up reminders in some repositories. In GitLab Reporter, Developer, Maintainer, and Owner can set up reminders, but not Guest. In Bitbucker, it's enough to have Read access to the repo, in GitHub it's enough to be a colloborator to set up reminders.

Which repo events does MyRepoBot support?

What includes 'My updates' subscription?


How to disconnect my account from the bot?

If you used Authorization Token to disconnect your account you need to go to /help > Remove your repository credentials. Your authorization token and all subscriptions and reminders settings will be deleted after this.

If you have added a webhook manually, you need to remove it from your repository.

How to delete the bot from Discord server?
