Hi there 👋,
We hope you are well in these challenging times and continue to ship code with the best quality.
Here are a few product updates from February, with two exciting new features. And also, there’s a new webinar that you don’t want to miss, so keep on reading!
New diff coverage quality gate for PRs 🎉
We know that Codacy was lacking good quality settings for coverage. By analyzing PRs with Codacy we could make sure your repo increased or at least maintained the same level of coverage. But what about blocking PRs if they missed your standards for coverage?
Well, we listened to you! We added the ability to define a minimum coverage threshold for pull requests. This new feature is handy if your team wants to focus on the coverage of new code or code changes rather than in legacy code.
Here’s what it means for you:
- You can define gates for code coverage, for example, 70% of coverage;
- You’ll block PRs automatically if the diff coverage of the pull request is lower than the set value;
- You’ll see the new diff coverage check on your Git provider.
Watch the video below to see it in action 👇
Check out the documentation on how to use this feature, and let us know if you have any questions.
