Unexplained commit_status_error 404 using Github integration


My organization uses Buildkite to run our Cypress automated tests. In Pipeline Settings we’ve opted in to automatically updating commit statuses in Github.

The Issue
For some odd reason buildkite errors with a 404 and turns off commit statuses syncing… when we re-enable the integration it works momentarily but eventually fails again.

I’ve eliminated the possibility of this being a configuraiton issue; considering the fact that the integration works initially. I’m wondering what’s causing this 404?

Is there a way to view the update commit status webhook payload ?

Hey kelokekpe :slightly_smiling_face:,

Thanks for reaching out!

Do you mind sending the build url to support@buildkite.com , so I can take a look

I’ve sent the details.

Would be useful to know where commit_status_error get its value from…

It doesn’t make much sense to me that a 404 as a result of a missing element in one of my tests would cause this (which has been suggested may be the issue in other conversations I’ve had).

It seems more likely that the 404 status code would be a response from Github when Buildkite tries to POST its build status
