Autolinks with alphanumeric IDs

Previously, when creating an autolink reference for a repository, you could only use a numeric identifier in the <num> parameter. This format didn't support integration with platforms that use alphanumeric identifiers, like the last segment of this Trello card URL: Now you can create an autolink with an alphanumeric identifier.

Any previously created autolinks will continue to support only numeric identifiers so that they continue working as before. Only newly created autolinks will support alphanumeric identifiers.

Autolinks are available in repositories with GitHub Pro, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, and GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see GitHub's products.

Learn more about autolinks at Configure autolinks in the GitHub documentation. We appreciate feedback on this and other topics in GitHub's public feedback discussions.


📊 Expanding access to charts for all plans

We are expanding our Insights capabilities to all plans! Charts help you visualize and track cycle velocity, current work status, and complex visualizations like Cumulative Flow Diagrams.

Starting today, all projects (beta) users can access custom current charts! Head over to the Insights tab for your projects to try it out and don't forget to share feedback!

We're also expanding access to time-based charts to allow organizations to visualize trends over time. Time-based charts are enabled for all Enterprise Cloud organizations and existing Team organizations with at least one project. Team organizations that have not used projects (beta) will be onboarded over the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for all of your feedback during the alpha and we hope you'll continue to share your thoughts with us on Discussions.

When using the GraphQL API, you can now filter Dependabot alerts by the scope of the dependency affected. The possible scopes are DEVELOPMENT or RUNTIME.

Dependency scope information is available for alerts opened on or after June 23, 2022, and can also be viewed in the Dependabot alerts UI as of last week.

For more information, see Dependabot alerts in the GraphQL API reference or learn more about Dependabot alerts in our documentation.
