The best way to integrate with Codecov is to Install Codecov's GitHub Integration.
Once installed, you are done! You do not need to set a Team Bot because Codecov will use the integration to post statuses and comments.
Codecov will use a single user's OAuth token to interact with your repositories, using GitHub/Bitbucket/GitLab API's. We call this the Codecov Bot.
Please follow these steps to select a Codecov Bot.
- Choose an existing user account, or create a new bot account.
- Login with this account into Codecov.
- Grant private repository access for GitHub users.
- Set the bot in the Team Yaml by navigating to
- Type in the new username in the yaml as seen below.
