Recipe Overview

There are many reasons a pull request may become inactive or stale in the course of building a product—it might be related to a feature you decide not to release, or inadvertently forgotten in the day-to-day shuffle.

Whatever the reason, it’s easy for stale requests to go unnoticed and pile up, adding unnecessary clutter and cognitive load to your otherwise streamlined operations.

With this Recipe, you’ll be better equipped to stay on top of your stale requests. When a pull request in Github is open for seven days, Rippling will automatically send a notification to the pull request’s author and their manager, alerting them to the stale request.

Seven days not long enough? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
