Data Definitions

This section describes how each data point is calculated. Metrics are calculated using all repositories that you have permitted the Github App access to.


The Github App works by consuming webhooks from Github. In the event that Github has an outage impacting webhooks, and is unable to deliver webhooks, data for any Github activity that occurred during the duration of the outage will also be missing from GitInsights.

Historic Data

The Github App will begin consuming webhooks to build metrics going forward from the time at which the Github App is installed. The Github App will also fetch metrics/activity for the prior 30 days. One caveat: historic data (pull requests and associated reviews/comments) will only be fetched for the default branches of your repositories.

If you notice any inaccuracies or have any questions, please leave feedback in the app or contact me directly at [email protected].
