Can't make ignore option work for directory with strict permissions

We have fuzz tests in our repo and they generate some files in fuzzdata directory during tests run. This dir and files inside have strict permissions, so codecov action can’t read them. I added this folder to ignore, however action still failing and I still see error about permissions in logs. I checked codecov.yaml and it’s valid. Enabling verbose mode for action doesn’t bring more clarity where is the problem. I read all similar topics, but none of these solutions helped me.


Pull Request where I’m trying to fix the problem


We allow codecov action to fail, so run is green, however noting was uploaded.

Hi @artemgavrilov, I’m working on a fix here. Should be deployed sometime next week.

@artemgavrilov I just pushed 0.2.6 of the uploader. Can you try to see if this fixes your issue?

@tom Yay! Everything works fine now! Thanks!
