Monitor Branches

Each VCS integration lets you specify which branches in the repository are monitored for changes. You can refine the selection to include or exclude specific branches.

To specify which branches are monitored for VCS changes, select an existing integration on the VCS Integrations page and update the Monitor Branches setting.
