Post-Commit Hooks

Codacy regularly pulls repositories for new updates (commits and pull requests).

For faster analysis, turn on post-commit hooks.

There are two ways to do it: automatically or manually

Automatic setup of Post-Commit Hook

If you are using GitHub or Bitbucket you may let Codacy configure the hook for you. Just go to your project settings and click in the tab Integrations. It should have a switch button for automatic setup of post-commit hooks.

Missing hook automatic setup switch button

It is possible that the switch is not visible to you.
If that is your case just go to the Integrations tab and add GitHub/Bitbucket.
Make sure you also enable it. 


Manual setup of Post-Commit Hook

  2. Go to Webhooks & Services under your repository settings
  3. Paste the Hook URL into the "Payload URL" field
  4. Select "application/json" in the "Content Type" field
  5. Click "Add Webhook"

Here's an example of how to configure your hooks on Github:

If you are having an error when turning on the Post-Commit hook make sure that you have Admin rights on the GitHub project.
