Codecov GitHub Action

GitHub Marketplace FOSSA Status Workflow for Codecov Action

Easily upload coverage reports to Codecov from GitHub Actions

The latest release of this Action adds support for tokenless uploads from GitHub Actions!

⚠️ Deprecration of v1

On February 1, 2022, this version will be fully sunset and no longer function

Due to the deprecation of the underlying bash uploader, the Codecov GitHub Action has released v2 which will use the new uploader. You can learn more about our deprecation plan and the new uploader on our blog.

We will be restricting any updates to the v1 Action to security updates and hotfixes.

Migration from v1 to v2

The v2 uploader has a few breaking changes for users

  • Multiple fields have not been transferred from the bash uploader or have been deprecated. Notably many of the functionalities and gcov_ arguments have been removed. Please check the documentation below for the full list.

Usage

To integrate Codecov with your Actions pipeline, specify the name of this repository with a tag number (@v2 is recommended) as a step within your workflow.yml file.

If you have a private repository, this Action also requires you to provide an upload token from codecov.io (tip: in order to avoid exposing your token, store it as a secret). Optionally, you can choose to include up to four additional inputs to customize the upload context. For public repositories, no token is needed

Inside your .github/workflows/workflow.yml file:

steps:
- uses: actions/checkout@master
- uses: codecov/codecov-action@v2
  with:
    token: ${{ secrets.CODECOV_TOKEN }} # not required for public repos
    files: ./coverage1.xml,./coverage2.xml # optional
    flags: unittests # optional
    name: codecov-umbrella # optional
    fail_ci_if_error: true # optional (default = false)
    verbose: true # optional (default = false)

Note: This assumes that you've set your Codecov token inside Settings > Secrets as CODECOV_TOKEN. If not, you can get an upload token for your specific repo on codecov.io. Keep in mind that secrets are not available to forks of repositories.

Arguments

Codecov's Action currently supports five inputs from the user: token, file, flags,name, and fail_ci_if_error. These inputs, along with their descriptions and usage contexts, are listed in the table below:

Input Description Usage
token Used to authorize coverage report uploads Required for private repos
files Comma-separated paths to the coverage report(s) Optional
directory Directory to search for coverage reports. Optional
dry_run Don't upload files to Codecov Optional
flags Flag the upload to group coverage metrics (unittests, uitests, etc.). Multiple flags are separated by a comma (ui,chrome) Optional
commit_parent The commit SHA of the parent for which you are uploading coverage. If not present, the parent will be determined using the API of your repository provider. When using the repository provider's API, the parent is determined via finding the closest ancestor to the commit. Optional
env_vars Environment variables to tag the upload with. Multiple env variables can be separated with commas (e.g. OS,PYTHON) Optional
fail_ci_if_error Specify if CI pipeline should fail when Codecov runs into errors during upload. Defaults to false Optional
- functionalities Toggle functionalities
- network Disable uploading the file network
move_coverage_to_trash Move discovered coverage reports to the trash Optional
name Custom defined name for the upload Optional
override_branch Specify the branch name Optional
override_build Specify the build number Optional
override_commit Specify the commit SHA Optional
override_pr Specify the pull request number Optional
override_tag Specify the git tag Optional
path_to_write_report Write upload file to path before uploading Optional
root_dir Used when not in git/hg project to identify project root directory Optional
slug Specify the slug manually (Enterprise use) Optional
url Change the upload host (Enterprise use) Optional
verbose Specify whether the Codecov output should be verbose Optional
version Specify which version of the Codecov Uploader should be used. Defaults to latest Optional
