Github status check "No coverage information found on head", and PR comment missing

Please check the troubleshooting guide before creating a ticket.
All fields below are required.


Code coverage reports are being uploaded correctly to codecove, the website shows what seems to be correct data/reports, BUT the github status check state “No coverage information found on head” and the PR comment isn’t being added.

What is most bizarre is that doing identical changes to a fork of the project performs as-expected, with PR comments being added promptly etc.

As suggested elsewhere, I have removed the codecov app and then re-added it but this has been without success.

Expected Results

Github status checks to report coverage, and a PR comment to be posted.

Here are screenshots of a working example from an arbitrarily “old” PR (about two weeks ago):

Actual Results

No PR comment being added. At the time of writing this, PR 3208 (linked to below) status checks completed over half an hour ago and I can see all uploads in the “build” tab – screenshots included within the PR.

“No coverage information on head” on the status check


Additional Information

Context: The JavaParser project has two parts – “core” and “symbol solver”.

It was noted recently that code coverage for the symbol solver section isn’t being reported – investigating this, it seems that it is a surefire error on our part (argline being overwritten).

Fixing this introduces a new problem of the PR comments not being shown, and the status checks reporting “No coverage information found on head”.

I am now (reasonably) confident that coverage reports are being produced correctly but the

Hi @MysterAitch sorry for the delay here. So the error message you are receiving is due to the fact that we are not getting coverage metrics for those flags (so instead of showing 0 lines hit/0 lines total, we show that message).

However, I see that you are sending coverage with flags here and have flags defined here. You are, however, missing a flags section in your yaml. Adding that should fix your issue.
