Upgrading Codacy Self-hosted#

Follow the steps below to upgrade to Codacy Self-hosted v9.0.0:

  1. Check the release notes for all Codacy Self-hosted versions between your current version and the most recent version for breaking changes and follow the instructions provided carefully.

  2. Follow the instructions to upgrade your Codacy Self-hosted instance.

  3. Update your Codacy command-line tools to the following versions:

Breaking changes#

This version of Codacy Self-hosted requires PostgreSQL version 10.20 since the previous major version will reach end-of-life (EOL) later this year.

To upgrade PostgreSQL:

  1. Follow the instructions on how to upgrade a PostgreSQL cluster.

  2. After the upgrade, clean the Codacy databases with vacuumdb to prevent the autovacuum feature from momentarily affecting the performance of the databases at a later time.


If you download and use an updated values-production.yaml file while upgrading to Codacy Self-hosted 9.0.0, the upgrade will fail because the MinIO PVC can't be resized.

Please see the troubleshooting instructions for a workaround.

Product enhancements#

  • The integration with GitHub Cloud and GitHub Enterprise now uses a GitHub Apps token instead of a personal one so that the following features continue working even if the person who created the integration leaves the organization on GitHub:

    • Analyzing new commits and pull requests
    • Updating the status check of pull requests
    • Suggesting changes
    • Creating comments and issues on GitHub for issues detected by Codacy

    Additionally, all activity related to the GitHub integration features now appear as having been performed by Codacy instead of the person who created the integration. (PLUTO-36, PLUTO-77)

    Suggested fix created by the Codacy GitHub integration

  • Added the new API endpoint searchOrganizationRepositoriesWithAnalysis to allow searching for repositories in more advanced use cases. For now, it's possible to search for repositories filtered by a list of names. (PLUTO-45)

  • Codacy now displays the coverage variation metric with a precision of two decimal places on the Pull request, Commit, and Files page, and you can define quality gates with a coverage variation threshold using the same precision.

    The increased precision of the metric reflects the code coverage changes better by reducing issues with rounding errors. (IO-54, IO-92, IO-93)

    Coverage variation on the Pull request quality overview

  • Improved the Codacy Analysis CLI output to provide better feedback when tools fail to run. (IO-47)

  • Improved the error handling for the Stylelint exit codes. (IO-47)

  • Now, the Files tab on Pull request and Commit pages displays only files with a variation of their code quality metrics, to make it more convenient to analyze the impact of your changes on the code quality of the files.

    You can still list all files that the pull request updated, even if their code quality metrics didn't change, by toggling the new option Show files without code quality changes. (CY-6455)

    Updated Files tab focusing only on files that have a variation in the code quality metrics

  • Added support for the ESLint plugin @shopify/eslint-plugin. (CY-6425)

  • Codacy Self-hosted now supports integrating with Bitbucket Server instances that have been configured with custom context paths. (CY-6251)

  • After enabling the analysis for a branch, Codacy now provides improved feedback about the progress of the first analysis of that branch. (CY-6166)

  • The Organization Overview now allows filtering repositories to help you see and focus on the information for the repositories that matter most to your team. (CY-5573)

Bug fixes#

  • Codacy now supports user accounts with email addresses containing the special characters specified in RFC 5322. (PLUTO-73)
  • Fixed an issue that prevented changing code pattern configurations in a coding standard if Codacy added the code patterns only after the coding standard had been created. (PLUTO-37)
  • Fixed an issue in the Codacy Analysis CLI and the cloc metrics tool that made the tools fail when running for an empty set of files. (IO-47)
  • Fixed an issue that caused PMD to fail when called in some modes. (IO-47)
  • Fixed a UI issue that caused the metrics displayed on the Files tab of pull request and commit pages to overlap the file names on smaller browser windows. (CY-6459)
  • It's now possible to Command+click files on Pull request and Commit pages to open the file details on new browser windows. (CY-6410)
  • Fixed a UI issue that caused the metrics displayed on the Commits page to overlap on smaller browser windows. (CY-6191)
  • Now, all links to documentation pages on the Codacy UI navigate to the corresponding Codacy Self-hosted documentation version. (CY-3958)
