  3. Click on the project name on the top bar
  4. Click on Project Settings

Create a Clayton connection user

If you want to create a dedicated user to be used as a connection user for your project you can follow the next steps:

  1. Create a new user with a new email address (e.g. "")
  2. Add this new user to the Organisation/Team in your Git provider (alternatively as an external contributor with Read/Write access to your repos)
  3. Log-in in your Git provider with your new user
  4. Log-in in Clayton selecting the proper Git provider (this step is required to retrieve a valid access token)
  5. Join your projects
  6. Log-out from Clayton
  7. Log-out from your Git provider
  8. Log-in in Clayton with your business user and change the connection user of your projects selecting the new user created


  • You must log-in in Clayton with the new user using the proper Git provider to generate the required access token
  • The connection user must have read/write access to your repos to create the needed Webhook and be able to publish inline comments for any problem detected
