Github webhook not sent when changed files are not tracked (github actions)


When commit includes only ignored files (like files in .github) the comment is sent to the PR but the webhooks are not called (using github actions)


Steps to Reproduce

See action output at under " Publish code coverage report" section
The report generated is
The pr is

Expected behavior: [What you expect to happen]
webhooks should be called

Actual behavior: [What actually happens]

webhooks are not called

Flakiness? [Does this happen all the time or only sometimes?]

@regevbr – thanks for bringing up this up. It may be an edge case not considered, but checking with the team that built Github Actions. I’ll get back to you as soon as I have more insight.


Hey @regevbr,

Thanks for bringing this up! It looks we encountered errors while trying to post status checks to your repository due to some rate limiting issues. We’ve been having problems as of late with the GitHub API and my guess is that this was likely an outcome of that. My suggestion would just be to re-run your CI


@regevbr, alternatively, you can connect with the Codecov Github App, which is not subject to the same rate limiting.
