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 are using GitHub or Bitbucket you can let Codacy configure the hook for you. Just go to your repository settings and click on the Integrations tab. This should have a switch button for automatic setup of post-commit hooks.

Missing hook automatic setup switch button

It is possible that this switch is not visible for you. If this is your case, go to the Integrations tab and add GitHub/Bitbucket. Make sure you enable it after adding it.
