rebase ๐Ÿ”—


If the repository is bigger than 512 MB, the rebase action is only available for Essential and Premium Plan subscribers.


Be aware that rebasing force-pushes the pull request head branch: any change done to that branch while Mergify is rebasing will be lost.

The rebase action will rebase the pull request against its base branch. To this effect, it clones the branch, run git rebase locally and push back the result to the GitHub repository.

Value Description



For certain actions, such as rebasing branches, Mergify has to impersonate a GitHub user. You can specify the account to use with this option. If no bot_account is set, Mergify picks randomly one of the organization users instead. The user account must have already been logged in Mergify dashboard once.
