Different kinds of snapshot approvals in Percy
How auto-approved branches work
How approval carryforward works
Percy's approval workflow is an important part of the visual review process.
Within Percy, you can either "Approve All" snapshots in an entire build, approve groups of matching visual changes or approve individual snapshots.
Once all snapshots in a build are approved, the whole build will be approved. If you have a source code integration installed, only marking a complete build as approved will mark your Percy check as "passed."
This project setting allows teams to filter and ‘auto-approve’ specific branches.
Branches that meet the specified filter(s) don’t require manual approval and will always be ‘green,’ reducing false positives and saving your team time.
By default, commits on
master are marked as Auto-approved.
Previously approved snapshots will stay approved from one build to the next for the life of the branch. In other words, snapshots are "carried forward" so identical snapshots will only have to be approved once per branch. Read more about our base build selection logic.
