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
