Many teams conduct quick code revews in GitHub through pull requests. It can be an easy way to get feedback, but some teams need a more structured process. This is especially true for teams that need to comply with regulatory standards, maintain an audit trail, or systematically reduce the risk of defects. By integrating with GitHub, Collaborator makes it easy to add a structured peer review process to your development cadence.
When a pull request is initiated in GitHub, Collaborator can automatically create a code review and build a link to the review directly in the GitHub conversation. This Collaborator review functions as a quality gate, blocking the merge until the review has been completed. You can configure checklists, required participants, and custom fields so you are able to ensure high quality reviews. Once all of your expectations for the review have been met, teams can mark the review as completed and automatically trigger a merge.
GitHub offers basic review capabilities but it can't enforce a strong software assurance program. By pairing these two tools together, your team can rely on Collaborator to ensure high quality reviews, facilitate cross-functional feedback, and capture metrics on your process. Review metrics are automatically captured so that your team can see trends, make process improvements, and meet compliance burdens. Code reviews are too important to be limited to just the pull request workflow. Collaborator lets your team build out a custom process that fits your team, measure success, and make meaningful improvements.
