Custom strings settings

Customize strings used by Runway when creating artifacts throughout the release's lifecycle
As part of its core functionality, Runway is capable of creating a number of artifacts on your behalf, like pull requests during automatic bump version or promote code actions, git tags during automatic tagging at the end of the release cycle, and more. These artifacts are populated with default strings, but you can customize the content of any of these strings to suit your team’s needs.
For any given string, there are a number of tokens available. In the final artifact, these tokens will be replaced with relevant values for the release or app in question.
A complete list of strings that can be customized (including default strings and available tokens for each) can be found in the table below.
