Differences between GitHub Projects and ZenHub

To integrate your Avion story map with GitHub, we require that you use either GitHub Projects or ZenHub. Both GitHub Projects and ZenHub allow you to manage your underlying GitHub issues in a Kanban view. This means that your issues are able to maintain a “state”, which is represented by a column. For instance: To do, Doing and Done. Avion uses these states to map to the workflow defined in the story map.

Features of GitHub Projects

  • GitHub Projects is free
  • Projects are created at the organization level and consume issues from many repos
  • Issues can have a “state”, which is dictated by the columns on a Kanban board
  • Boards can be filtered by various attributes, for easier planning
GitHub Projects mapping Avion releases to GitHub labels for better release planning

Features of ZenHub

  • ZenHub is free for open-source teams
  • Workspaces can be created an an organization level and consume issues from many repos
  • Issues can have a “state”, which is dictated by the columns on a Kanban board
  • Boards can be filtered by various attributes, for easier planning
  • ZenHub offers a whole range of additional types for higher-level planning, such as epics and release reports

Integration Differences Between GitHub Projects and ZenHub

There are a few subtle differences in your Avion integration depending on which tool you use to manage your GitHub issues.

With GitHub Projects you can:

  • Map Avion story states to GitHub Projects Kanban columns
  • Optionally map Avion sizes to labels
  • Optionally map Avion tags to labels
  • Optionally map Avion releases to labels (repo and org projects)
  • In classic projects:
    • Map Avion releases to milestones (repo projects only)

With ZenHub you can:

  • Optionally map Avion releases to labels
  • Map Avion story states to ZenHub Kanban columns
  • Optionally map Avion sizes to ZenHub estimates
  • Optionally map Avion tags to labels
