Linking annotations back to the log lines

When you use a problem matcher to create annotations and don’t supply a file or line, it would be useful if it would link to the line in the _log_ where the annotation occurred, rather than just linking to the commit. e.g. Screen Shot 2019-11-06 at 9 29 59 AM

The errors and warnings we get when checking R packages don’t typically have a specific source file or line attached, so this is a common case for us.


This is not currently supported, but it is on our radar we are looking into ways to improve this experience!

To ensure i’m understanding your suggestion, you would like a link to the log line in the build logs, not a link to the  step line in the yaml file, correct?
