Hi there 👋,

Welcome back to work, if that’s the case! We hope you had an amazing time over the holidays and you came back fresh and ready to start a brand new month 🎉

Here are a few updates from August that we’ve been working on. There’s also a new webinar that you don’t want to miss, so keep on reading!

GitHub analysis will not stop if the integrator leaves

When a user that integrated a repository left or lost access to a repo, the analysis would stop working. This was far from ideal, right?

Now, if the integrator leaves, you’ll still be able to:

  • Receive suggested changes on your PR;
  • Create comments on issues (only for public repos) from Codacy;
  • Open issues on Github from Codacy;
  • Create push hooks, and check if they exist;
  • Receive emails with analysis results.

Plus, the features show that Codacy performed the activity, not a user, which you’ve been asking for a while!

Note: The analysis will stop working if the user removes their account from Codacy or GitHub.

Filtering repositories in the organization overview

Were you tired of seeing your entire list of repos every time you entered the Codacy dashboard? Well, we’ve good news for you: it’s now possible to filter repositories in the organization overview!

What does it mean for you:

  • Narrowing the number of repos you see in your organization dashboard will help you focus on what matters most.
  • You can also filter repos by programming language, narrowing the scope of what you see even more.
  • The repo selection is stored per user (in-browser), so when you’re back, your selection will be there, waiting for you.

Decimal points in Coverage

We know Coverage didn’t have enough granularity, which could be deceiving. A 1% change, in particular in big repos, is a lot of variation, and we were not showing that. 

We’ve listened to you, and we’ve improved the granularity of coverage by showing decimal points!

Here’s what it means for you:

  • Each file now has more granularity on the coverage variation metric, showing 80.75% instead of just 80%, for example.
  • On the Pull Request and Commit views, you’ll see decimal places for the Coverage variation metric;
  • If you have a quality gate of -2% and a coverage variation of -2.45%, for example, Codacy will now be able to fail this check. Before this feature, -2.45 would be rounded to -2, and the quality gate would pass.
