This is a guide to understanding and learning how to manage Contributors of your repositories.

Jump to the different sections:

What is a Contributor?

A Contributor is any user account that interacts with an imported repository. This includes someone who commits to a repository or someone who comments on or approves a pull request.

Logilica Insights charges per active contributor. An active Contributor is anyone who has interacted with your repository within the last 30 days.

Navigating to Contributors

Select Settings:

After logging in, select "Settings" from the menu on the left-hand side.

Select Contributors:

From the dropdown menu, select "Contributors".

Contributors View:

You will see a list of all the detected contributors. You can use the check boxes and the buttons in the top right to apply actions to contributors.

What are Connector Identities?

Connector identities refer to the usernames used by a person from each data source. Users will typically have one or more email addresses associated with their git commits, and a username associated with their GitHub/GitLab account.

Merging Contributors

When adding a new repository, Logilica Insights will automatically detect and merge Connector Identities. However, it's not always possible to do this automatically.

Select Contributors to Merge:

Select two or more Contributors you wish to merge into one, then press the "Merge Selected" button.

Choose the Primary Contributor:

Then, in the window that appears, select the identity you wish to be the Primary Contributor. You should select the identity that has the most accurate email and name. Once you've selected the Primary Contributor, press "Merge".


You've successfully merged the selected Contributors.

Inviting Contributors to Logilica Insights

Invite one or more Contributors to join you in viewing the metrics and insights of your projects in Logilica Insights Instance.

Select Contributor:

Select the Contributor you would like to invite by using the checkbox next to their name. Once selected, press "Invite Selected".

Confirm Invitation:

Then a window will appear, select the role of this Contributor to the repository. Once selected, press "Confirm". To learn more about roles click here.


You've successfully sent an invite. The Contributor will receive an email invite to setup their account in the email address listed in the Contributors list.
