Codacy scans for dependabot

Github dependabot PRs are not being scanned by codacy because dependabot isn’t a real user. What is the recommended approach in such cases?

@abshetty08 did you every figure out a solution to this. We are now seeing this cause issues as well.

@timnolte: Codacy is able to run scans on PRs created by only those users who exist in codacy in your organization. You can get the dependabot user added to your codacy org and following that you should start seeing codacy scanning those PRs.

You should be able to see the dependabot user email on the codacy dashboard against the PR that dependabot created.
