Link existing GitHub issues with a new Aha! Feature

The current Aha! - GitHub integration lets you sync features to GitHub issues. This won't work in the opposite way. However, It'd be nice to have an editable field to reflect that the Aha! feature is linked to a GitHub issue.

    I our process all the engineering communication happens on GitHub and they break features into smaller issues. We have a system mapping of one release to GitHub, and features are mapped to issues.


    It would be amazing if I can detect all the issues in a milestone and populate the list in Aha!, as such is the way things happen. Due to the lack of backward data import, it is really hard to keep a dual record of the same issues and manually recreate the issues, and update them, all the time. Please fix this!!!

    This is a blocker, there is no way to on board this feature without an option to link Aha feature with existing Github issue.

    For devs that live in Github, and PMs that live in feature is a must.

    This would be very useful for us. We currently use some of the Aha-GitHub integration, but it's limited by the fact that it only works if the issue "starts" in Aha and is then pushed in to GitHub. This isn't always the case.

    I agree with David Hadley - existing to existing needs to be included

    We're an engineering-heavy company, and this would help us a lot.

    This feature would be extremely useful for us.  


    We don't use Aha as effectively as we could as many larger items of work start life as a github issue, and it's too burdensome creating Aha items then being forced to manually keep them in synch.

    This would be an awesome update for us!

    Will we get feedback when it gets added to the roadmap ?

    We would benefit from a two-way integration for the following reasons:

    1. Developers enter bugs and reminders/todos as Github issues. As a product manager, this is great because I can easily see the volume of issues that we aren't necessarily tracking in Aha! It would be excellent to have these (or maybe only those with certain GH labels) created and synced as either ideas or Features in Aha! That way, when they make it into a release, they are already synced up to receive status updates from GH.
    2. Sometimes, Features are created in Aha! and there may already be GH Issues related to that Feature. It would be great to be able to create a Feature in Aha! and link existing GH issues to either the Feature or to Requirements on the Feature.

    Thanks for the consideration.

    As a developer I prefer to continue to use github directly, but managers are using Aha. We ran into this issue today where someone had to close several issues I created just to re-enter them into Aha. In addition to producing unwanted noise he has remember to duplicate the labels/milestones.

    We would benefit from this update!

    It would be great to be able to not only link existing github issues to new Aha! features but also link existing github issues to EXISTING Aha! features.
