Creating a pull request from a fork
You can create a pull request to propose changes you've made to a fork of an upstream repository.
Anyone with write access to a repository can create a pull request from user-owned fork.
You can also give the upstream repository's maintainers permission to push commits to a user-owned fork. If your pull request compares your topic branch with a branch in the upstream repository as the base branch, then your topic branch is also called the compare branch of the pull request. For more information about pull request branches, including examples, see "Creating a pull request."
- Navigate to the original repository where you created your fork.
- To the right of the Branch menu, click New pull request.
- On the Compare page, click compare across forks.
- In the "base branch" drop-down menu, select the branch of the upstream repository you'd like to merge changes into.
- In the "head fork" drop-down menu, select your fork, then use the "compare branch" drop-down menu to select the branch you made your changes in.
- Type a title and description for your pull request.
- On user-owned forks, if you do not want to allow anyone with push access to the upstream repository to make changes to your pull request, unselect Allow edits from maintainers.
- To create a pull request that is ready for review, click Create Pull Request.
To create a draft pull request, use the drop-down and select Create Draft Pull Request, then click Draft Pull Request. For more information about draft pull requests, see "About pull requests."
