Post-commit hooks#

For Codacy to check updates in your repository (new commits and pull requests) you must have post-commit hooks enabled.

There are two ways to do this: automatically or manually

Automatic setup of post-commit hook#

If you're using GitHub or Bitbucket you can let Codacy configure the hook for you. Go to your repository settings and click on the Integrations tab. There should be a switch button for the automatic setup of post-commit hooks.

Missing hook automatic setup switch button#

If the switch isn't visible, go to the Integrations tab and add the GitHub or Bitbucket integration.

Important

Make sure that you enable the integration after adding it.
