Getting Started

It's easy to get started with GitHub Pull Requests for Visual Studio Code. Simply follow these steps to get started.

  1. Install the extension from within VS Code or download it from the marketplace.
  2. Open your desired GitHub repository in VS Code.
  3. A new viewlet will appear on the activity bar which shows a list of pull requests and issues.
  4. Use the button on the viewlet to sign in to GitHub.
  5. You may need to configure the githubPullRequests.remotes setting, by default the extension will look for PRs for origin and upstream. If you have different remotes, add them to the remotes list.
  6. You should be good to go!

Configuring the extension

There are several settings that can be used to configure the extension.

As mentioned above, githubPullRequests.remotes is used to specify what remotes the extension should try to fetch pull requests from.

To customize the pull request tree, you can use the githubPullRequests.queries setting. This setting is a list of labels and search queries which populate the categories of the tree. By default, these queries are "Waiting For My Review", "Assigned To Me", and "Created By Me". An example of adding a "Mentioned Me" category is to change the setting to the following:

"githubPullRequests.queries": [
		"label": "Waiting For My Review",
		"query": "is:open review-requested:${user}"
		"label": "Assigned To Me",
		"query": "is:open assignee:${user}"
		"label": "Created By Me",
		"query": "is:open author:${user}"
		"label": "Mentioned Me",
		"query": "is:open mentions:${user}"

Similarly, there is a setting to configure your issues queries: githubIssues.queries.

Queries use GitHub search syntax.

To view additional settings for the extension, you can open VS Code settings and search for "github pull requests".
