Hi there 👋,
With 2022 behind us, we can now welcome 2023 and focus on making it an incredible year! Your friends here at Codacy wish you a Happy New Year, full of health, happiness, and a beautiful codebase! 🎉
Let’s kick off this year with some exciting product updates!
[Quality] Better visibility on Coverage errors
Our team has been working hard on enhancing our UI to allow you to better troubleshoot any issues with Coverage.
After successfully setting up Coverage, you can now see a warning message on the Pull Request detail page when Codacy Quality can’t calculate your PR metrics. The message includes a link to the Coverage tab in your repository settings, where you can test and validate your coverage setup.
This new message lets you know there’s an error and shows you how to fix it.
[Pulse] Bitbucket integration is now live!
We’re very excited to announce that Codacy Pulse now supports Bitbucket integration! You can collect changes and deployment data from Bitbucket repositories into Pulse’s Accelerate dashboard.
This new integration is going to be released in stages:
- ✅ Stage 1: We show you the Accelerate dashboard metrics using merged Pull Requests to detect deployment automatically.
- ➡️ Stage 2: We’ll soon be able to import historical data and backfill the dashboards automatically – we’re almost there!
Meanwhile, check out our docs if you have questions about the Bitbucket integration.
[Pulse] Track the impact of changes with Notes
Changes in your organization’s internal or external environment can impact your software delivery process. For example, changes in the team structure, adoption of new working processes, or major events affecting the system stability might impact your teams’ performance.
That’s why we’re introducing Notes to Codacy Pulse. Notes are an easy way to annotate actions or events that took place on a specific date and correlate them with Engineering productivity metrics. All the Notes will be visible on your organization’s dashboards.
How can your Engineering team use Notes?
- To keep track of your continuous improvement journey, visualize actions and their impact.
- In a retrospective meeting, you can review recent actions and evaluate if they meet the expected outcome.
- Engineering Managers can use Notes in their 1:1s to share with team members the impact of their work.
