Lock

Description

A GitHub App that locks closed issues and pull requests after a period of inactivity.

Usage

  1. Install the GitHub App for the intended repositories
  2. Create .github/lock.yml based on the template below
  3. It will start scanning for closed issues and/or pull requests within an hour

Configuration

Create .github/lock.yml in the default branch to enable the app. The file can be empty, or it can override any of these default settings:

# Configuration for lock-threads - https://github.com/dessant/lock-threads

# Number of days of inactivity before a closed issue or pull request is locked
daysUntilLock: 365

# Skip issues and pull requests created before a given timestamp. Timestamp must
# follow ISO 8601 (`YYYY-MM-DD`). Set to `false` to disable
skipCreatedBefore: false

# Issues and pull requests with these labels will not be locked. Set to `[]` to disable
exemptLabels: []

# Label to add before locking, such as `outdated`. Set to `false` to disable
lockLabel: false

# Comment to post before locking. Set to `false` to disable
lockComment: >
  This thread has been automatically locked since there has not been
  any recent activity after it was closed. Please open a new issue for
