Pull Request

Clayton runs code reviews of every pull request (merge requests) created toward any tracked branch and publishes approvals if the delta of the code analysed complies with the policies configured.

Scope of the reviews

  • Only the delta of the code introduced

What we publish on Git

  • PR approvals

  • In-line comments on each violation detected in the new code (the delta)


In addition to the automatic PR scans, Clayton supports feature branch reviews.

Scope of the review

  • The entire branch up to a certain commit/revision (NOT the delta of the code as in the PRs)

What we publish on Git
