Configure Your Release Detection
In order to surface accurate numbers for metrics like Cycle Time, we need to know what it looks like when your team releases to production. You can configure LinearB to include and exclude specific branches and/or pull requests, even specific file extensions. Learn more about configuring release detection here.
