IMPORTANT: Git-Zen for GitLab is designed to work with GitLab.com, and will not function with self-hosted instances of GitLab.
Git-Zen is a simple yet powerful GitLab integration application for Zendesk. Git-Zen coordinates your Zendesk tickets with your GitLab commits and issues. When a Zendesk ticket arrives, and code needs to be changed to correct the issue, you can now easily see which files needed to be changed to correct the issue right next to the ticket. Git-Zen makes it easy to look at past tickets and see exactly what code was changed to correct the issue, in case further troubleshooting is needed in the future. Git-Zen can also keep your agents separate from your developers, so that you do not need to have Zendesk licenses for your development staff; simply create a new GitLab issue related to the Zendesk ticket directly from within Zendesk.
Easy to Use
To associate a GitLab commit, all you have to do is include the Zendesk ticket number in the issue description or comment of the commit, prefaced by "gz#":
this is a comment for gz#12345
See a list of related issues, files, and commits right next to the ticket. Click on a commit link to view the commit in GitLab. Create a new GitLab issue, link an existing GitLab issue, and comment on a GitLab issue right from within the Zendesk ticket.
Multiple tickets can be referenced in the same commit comment or issue. Multiple repositories can be referenced; so if a change was required to both your database schema and your web application, all of the changes will be listed together.
Enjoy the full feature set for less than $20 a month (cost is per Zendesk domain account; Git-Zen offers an unlimited number of users with each account).

How to use Git-Zen
To associate a GitLab commit or issue, all you have to do is include the Zendesk ticket number in a GitLab commit comment or GitLab issue description, prefaced by "gz#"; in the below example, the Zendesk ticket number is 12345:
this is a comment for gz#12345
You may add more than one ticket number in the same commit (or issue) comment; both tickets will have the commit (or issue) added to it in Git-Zen.
gz#12345 and gz#67890 were affected by this commit
You may add commits from different repositories to the same ticket; this is especially useful when a solution to a ticket is spread across multiple projects, such as a when a change is required to both a database schema and a web application in order to solve an issue.
