Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install tracker_api

Basic Usage

client = 'my-api-token')                    # Create API client                                                           # Get email for the authenticated person
client.activity                                                           # Get a list of all the activity performed the authenticated person
client.notifications                                                      # Get notifications for the authenticated person

projects = client.projects                                                # Get all projects
project  = client.project(123456)                                         # Find project with given ID
project.activity                                                          # Get a list of all the activity performed on this project

project.stories                                                           # Get all stories for a project
project.stories(with_state: :unscheduled, limit: 10)                      # Get 10 unscheduled stories for a project
project.stories(filter: 'requester:OWK label:"jedi stuff"')               # Get all stories that match the given filters
project.create_story(name: 'Destroy death star')                          # Create a story with the name 'Destroy death star'

story = project.story(847762630)                                          # Find a story with the given ID
story.activity                                                            # Get a list of all the activity performed on this story = 'Save the Ewoks'                                             # Update a single story attribute
story.attributes = { name: 'Save the Ewoks', description: '...' }         # Update multiple story attributes
story.add_label('Endor')                                                  # Add a new label to an existing story                                                                # Save changes made to a story

story = client.story(117596687)                                           # Get a story with story ID only

story = client:     client,
                                          project_id: 123456,
                                          id:         847762630)          # Use the Story resource to get the story
comments = story.comments                                                 #   comments without first fetching the story

task = story.tasks.first                                                  # Get story tasks
task.complete = true                                                                 # Mark a task complete

epics = project.epics                                                     # Get all epics for a project
epic  = epics.first
label = epic.label                                                        # Get an epic's label

workspaces = client.workspaces                                            # Get person's multi-project workspaces

Eager Loading

See Pivotal Tracker API documentation for how to use the fields parameter.

client = 'my-api-token')                    # Create API client

client.project(project_id, fields: ':default,labels(name)')               # Eagerly get labels with a project
client.project(project_id, fields: ':default,epics')                      # Eagerly get epics with a project
client.project(project_id).stories(fields: ':default,tasks')              # Eagerly get stories with tasks
client.project.stories(fields: ':default,comments(:default,person)')      # Eagerly get stories with comments and the person that made the comment
story.comments(fields: ':default,person')                                 # Eagerly get comments and the person that made the comment for a story


Direct mutation of an attribute value skips coercion and dirty tracking. Please use direct assignment or the specialized add_* methods to get expected behavior.

This will cause coercion and dirty tracking to be bypassed and the new label will not be saved.

story = project.story(847762630)

label = 'Special Snowflake')
story.labels << label


  • Add missing resources and endpoints
  • Add create, update, delete for resources

Semantic Versioning

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  1. MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  2. MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  3. PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.

Additional labels for pre-release and build metadata are available as extensions to the MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH format.


Currently this client supports read-only access to Pivotal Tracker. We will be extending it as our use cases require, but are always happy to accept contributions.

  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
