Show multiple statuses in GitHub Pull Requests

Currently, GitHub only allows one status to be shown in the status bar of a pull request. If using two continuous integration services, such as Travis and AppVeyor, the last updated status is the one shown, which means that it is not possible to see the status from both systems at the same time.

This site provides a simple webapp that allows you to show statuses from multiple continuous integration tools in the status bar of a GitHub pull request:

    GitHub now supports this without the need for addons:

    Feodor, is this now supported by AppVeyor? Do you specify the "context" when sending notification from AppVeyor? i.e. something like continuousintegration/appveyor? Or is this configurable?

    Sure, we do specify context.

    Thanks for getting back to me. Yeah, we got it all working. We were seeing some strangeness when trying to set up status notifications for both AppVeyor and TeamCity, but it is all working now :-)

    Hi there,

    We recently added a repo called Localization to our org at . I've been trying to enable AppVeyor to show the CI status in the PR but it doesn't show up. We also have Travis enabled and that one shows up fine. I do have AppVeyor enabled though I had to manually create the web hook, but I can see AppVeyor running the builds and all. It's just not showing the CI status in the PR. For all our other repos this is working fine.

    Is there anything special I need to do to enable the CI status to show up in the PR?

    Hi Eilon,

    You said there was no webhook automatically added to that repository and then you added it manually. This is the reason why there is no status set on Pull Requests - GitHub user currently authorized in AppVeyor doesn't have "write" (and "admin" for placing webhook) rights on that repository. You can see (and re-authorize) GitHub user linked to AppVeyor account on this page:

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Feodor,

    Thank you, I got it working! You are correct and the user I use to run the AppVeyor builds didn’t have the correct permissions on the new repo I added. I fixed the permissions and now everything works.

    Currently it seems Appveyor always sends continuous-integration/appveyor/pr as the context. Is there a way to change it? We have two Appveyor builds for the same projects, but since they have the same context, only one of them shows up in pull-requests.

    Hi Thomas,

    So, you have 2 projects for the same repository? Could you please clarify?

    Hi Feodor,

    Yes, exactly (I meant "same project" not "same projects"). 2 AppVeyor projects for a single GitHub repo.

    Yes, there is a limitation right now. Both projects will be using the same status context and "compete" with each other.

    I've added a new issue:
