Code review analytics (PREMIUM ALL)
Moved to GitLab Premium in 13.9.
Code review analytics displays a table of open merge requests that have at least one non-author comment. The review time is the amount of time since the first comment by a non-author in a merge request.
You can use code review analytics to view review metrics per merge request and improve your code review process.
- A high number of comments or commits may indicate:
- Code that is too complex.
- Authors who require more training.
- A long review time may indicate:
- Types of work that move slower than other types.
- Opportunities to accelerate your development cycle.
- Few comments and approvers may indicate a lack of available team members.
For a video explanation, see Code review analytics: Faster code review.
