August Product Update: Codecov in VS Code and more

August 29, 2023 Cassie Gatton

August Product Update

We’re back this month with some updates to make your experience with Codecov a little easier. Now you can validate your Codecov YAML directly in VS Code and we added functionality for a more complete and consistent coverage result experience. Oh, and we launched a new 14-day free trial – it’s kind of a big deal.

Codecov is Coming to VS Code

We’re on a mission to make Codecov accessible wherever you work. Last month we pushed a pretty big update to our Slack app. The month before that, shipped a new CLI tool. Now, in this month’s update, we’re bringing the ability to validate `codecov.yml` in VS Code with our new extension – easily update coverage settings without inadvertently altering Codecov’s behavior due to an invalid configuration.

Try it out.

Manually Tell Codecov When You’re Finished Uploading Reports

Now you can tell Codecov when you finish uploading reports to get notifications only when you upload all reports and flags to get one complete consistent coverage result.

Currently, Codecov triggers notifications whenever it receives a new upload. Sometimes this gives incorrect coverage results as there are still reports coming our way that need to be processed. Now you can set up the manual trigger feature to tell Codecov that you finished uploading reports and want to receive notifications, without getting a new notification or PR comment after each individual upload.

How you can set it up?
To use the manual upload trigger, you need to be using the codecovCLI, and use codecovcli send-notifications command after the codecovcli do-upload commands that tells Codecov that you finished uploading and you’re ready to receive notifications.

To stop getting the automatically sent notifications after each upload, you need to set manual_trigger in your Codecov.yml file that should look like this:

manual_trigger: true

That’s it! You’re ready to go.
