Clayton helps you keep your code quality under control automatically by monitoring and reviewing your code when it changes in your repository.
Webhooks in your version control system, let Clayton listen to specific Git events and trigger reviews in real-time (ref. How the Clayton code reviews work).

PRO TIP: Don't forget to configure the settings in the More options section to make sure never to miss a review:
Scan PRs only when the destination is a tracked branch: By default, we review all Pull Requests, regardless of the branch they target. This setting restricts automated reviews to only your tracked branches.
Amend PR reviews only when issues change: By default, we amend PR reviews on your source control provider anytime new commits are pushed to the head branch. With this setting, we amend PR reviews only when issues are added or fixed.
Track your branches
Please note that only pull requests created towards branches that are tracked in Clayton are reviewed automatically. Make sure to track all your integration branches to protect every new development and enforce best practices at earlier stages.
