This version of GitHub Enterprise Server will be discontinued on 2024-08-29. No patch releases will be made, even for critical security issues. For better performance, improved security, and new features, upgrade to the latest version of GitHub Enterprise Server. For help with the upgrade, contact GitHub Enterprise support.

The REST API is now versioned. For more information, see "About API versioning."

REST API endpoints for check suites

Use the REST API to manage check suites.

Note: Write permission for the REST API to interact with checks is only available to GitHub Apps. OAuth apps and authenticated users can view check runs and check suites, but they are not able to create them. If you aren't building a GitHub App, you might be interested in using the REST API to interact with commit statuses.

Note: A GitHub App usually only receives one check_suite event per commit SHA, even if you push the commit SHA to more than one branch. To find out when a commit SHA is pushed to a branch, you can subscribe to branch create events.

Create a check suite

Creates a check suite manually. By default, check suites are automatically created when you create a check run. You only need to use this endpoint for manually creating check suites when you've disabled automatic creation using "Update repository preferences for check suites".

Note: The Checks API only looks for pushes in the repository where the check suite or check run were created. Pushes to a branch in a forked repository are not detected and return an empty pull_requests array and a null value for head_branch.

OAuth apps and personal access tokens (classic) cannot use this endpoint.
