We are trying to migrate from our CI into GitHub Actions. Our workflows produce simple pure static HTML test reports. We upload these reports into public S3 and want to publish S3 URLs somewhere (except action logs) as a result of an action run.
Previously we have used GitHub Statuses API and put this URL into
Details link. And it was actually enough for us:
But Github Actions themselves put Details links into the same region. And as far as I know, it’s impossible to modify them because these links are pasted with absolutely different API (Checks API). I’ve tried to modify Checks
DetailsURL directly from action using Checks - GitHub Docs request, and it even responses 200, but the URL under Details doesn’t change.
Also, I’ve tried to use Statuses as before. It works but now I have x2 rows and it looks weird.
Also, I’ve checked other options:
- Put reports links into comments.
We have a lot of different checks so it’s impossible to have a separate comment for each report. So we have to place all URLs into a single comment. The main cons here are possible race conditions when two checks simultaneously try to modify a single comment.
- Put reports links into Annotations (Workflow commands for GitHub Actions - GitHub Docs).
It’s also working, but URLs even not clickable (HTML and markdown are not supported, I’ve checked)
So, is there any better solution where I can put my custom URL so it will be simpler to find it?
