owner string Required

The account owner of the repository. The name is not case sensitive.

repo string Required

The name of the repository without the .git extension. The name is not case sensitive.

deployment_id integer Required

deployment_id parameter

Body parameters
Name, Type, Description

The state of the status. When you set a transient deployment to inactive, the deployment will be shown as destroyed in GitHub.

Can be one of: error, failure, inactive, in_progress, queued, pending, success

target_url string

The target URL to associate with this status. This URL should contain output to keep the user updated while the task is running or serve as historical information for what happened in the deployment. Note: It's recommended to use the log_url parameter, which replaces target_url.

Default: ""

log_url string

The full URL of the deployment's output. This parameter replaces target_url. We will continue to accept target_url to support legacy uses, but we recommend replacing target_url with log_url. Setting log_url will automatically set target_url to the same value. Default: ""

Default: ""

description string

A short description of the status. The maximum description length is 140 characters.

Default: ""

environment string

Name for the target deployment environment, which can be changed when setting a deploy status. For example, production, staging, or qa. If not defined, the environment of the previous status on the deployment will be used, if it exists. Otherwise, the environment of the deployment will be used.

environment_url string

Sets the URL for accessing your environment. Default: ""

Default: ""

auto_inactive boolean

Adds a new inactive status to all prior non-transient, non-production environment deployments with the same repository and environment name as the created status's deployment. An inactive status is only added to deployments that had a success state. Default: true
