Check runs can complete with a Neutral conclusion. Does that conclusion satisfy a required check? In other words, since it’s not a failure, can a PR with a required check be merged with a Neutral conclusion?
As it states in the required status checks documentation:
After enabling required status checks, all required status checks must pass before branches can be merged into the protected branch.
This means that all required checks must succeed.
I hope that helps!
Thank you, @lee-dohm. Elsewhere I was told something slightly different:
“success” and “neutral” are OK to deploy and merge. “failure” and “error” are not.
