Getting started with GitHub

Codacy automatically identifies issues through static code review analysis and notifies you on security issues, code coverage, code duplication, and code complexity in every commit and pull request.

To get started, head to and Sign up with GitHub.

Step 1: Sign up

Signing up with GitHub links your Codacy user with your GitHub user, making it easier to add repositories and invite teammates.

You’ll be prompted to allow Codacy access to your GitHub during the GitHub authorization flow. Read more about the permissions Codacy requires and why.

Keep in mind that you (and/or organization Owner) need to explicitly allow Codacy to have access to an organization.

Step 2: Account Details

You’ll be asked to fill in a few details about your company so we know a bit more about your use case.

Step 3: Choose an organization


Now, you’ll need to select the organization that contains your repositories. If you can’t see the organization you are looking for, read this article to learn more.

The selected GitHub organization will then be synced with Codacy so that managing your team permissions is easy. Read more about what synced organizations do.

Step 4: Add repositories


And as a final step, you can select the repositories that you wish to analyze. Codacy will start the first analysis and set up everything required to ensure your next commits are analyzed.

You're all set!  🎉

Read our guide on what to do with a newly added repository to explore static analysis issues and continue configuring your repository.


Synced Organizations Availability 🚧

Sync Organizations are only available for GitHub organizations. While we are working on expanding support for this feature, if you'd like to add repositories from a personal GitHub account, follow the steps for adding a repository through the manual wizard.
