List branches or pull requests for a commit (preview)

We're releasing a couple of REST endpoints that enable you to retrieve additional information from an existing commit.

To access the new endpoints you must provide a custom media type in the Accept header:


The first endpoint allows you to get the list of branches where the given commit is the HEAD:

GET /repos/:owner/:repo/commits/:commit_sha/branches-where-head

The second one enables you to get a list of pull requests associated with the commit:

GET /repos/:owner/:repo/commits/:commit_sha/pulls

During the preview period, we may change aspects of these APIs based on developer feedback. If we do, we will announce the changes here on the developer blog, but we will not provide any advance notice.

If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know!
