Show GitHub PR check update request status

Description of the feature request

Show GitHub PR check update request status somewhere in the UI.

Use case / for what or how I would use it

Currently, if PR status check is not updated, It is unknown whether it is a misconfiguration, GitHub connectivity issue or a bug on bitrise.io.

Hi @koral,

Thanks for the #feature-request! :slight_smile:

Can you please share a bit more info/details?

The PR status is updated as soon as possible; if the build starts it should be “in progress”, if it gets on hold it should be “on hold”.

I probably miss something, so could you please describe the use case for this with a bit more detail?

The issue was that PR status had not been updated on GitHub. Build on bitrise was already finished while on GitHub it was still in progress.
It was a request from on-site chat to add a feature request here. I’ll bump that thread in on-site chat.

That should only happen if bitrise.io can not update the status on GitHub, so I’m not sure if we can do anything more about this then pointing to the related Troubleshooting guide: http://devcenter.bitrise.io/faq/github-pull-request-status-troubleshooting/

Or did you mean to show this fact on bitrise.io that the status could not be sent back (to GitHub/…)? That might actually be a useful hint on the bitrise.io UI… :+1:

This is exactly what I meant. Show result of the status update request somewhere on bitrise.io.

Definitely makes sense and would be quite useful for debugging - thanks @koral!

The feature has been added. You should now see a warning message on the top of the build’s page if the latest status update failed.
