Accelerate is only available to members of LaunchDarkly's Early Access Program (EAP). If you want access to this feature, join the EAP.
This topic explains how to set up code references for Accelerate.
Accelerate uses code references to associate flags with code-based changes such as pull requests and deployments. These associations let Accelerate calculate usage metrics and increase the accuracy of the flag health metric. To learn more, read Flag health.
Set up code references
Set up code references for each codebase in which you use flags.
Until you configure it, the application will prompt you to set up code references.
Click Set up to view the instructions or Dismiss to hide the prompt. If you dismiss the prompt, you can still read the instructions for setting up code references using the Get started button at the bottom of the screen, or by clicking your display picture and selecting "Setup."
To learn how to set up code references, read Code references.
