Code review analytics (PREMIUM)

Moved to GitLab Premium in 13.9.

Use code review analytics to view review metrics per merge request and make improvements to your code review process:

  • A high number of comments or commits may indicate:
    • The code 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.
  • Fewer comments and approvers may indicate staffing requirements.

Code review analytics displays a table of open merge requests that have at least one non-author comment. The review time is measured from when the first non-author comment was submitted.
