matrix no longer generated

I've got a matrix build configured via appveyor.yaml on a public repository.
It used to generate jobs as expected, see:
At the next build it stopped generating a matrix, see:

The appveyor.yaml file did not change between those builds.

What should I do to restore the old behavior?

Best Wishes

    Hi Slawo,

    Most probably appveyor.yml is no longed picked up from the repository. To fix that you need to re-authorized AppVeyor to access your GitHub account/org on "New project" page.

    Thank you Feodor, that seems to have worked.

    It feels like this is a common problem for many.

    Perhaps a log entry that comments on the issue would help diagnose it better, i.e. a build that sees an appveyor.yml file in the checkout, but did not use it for configuration might be worth a log line that points to a knowledge base article explaining the issue. It's not very intuitive that appveyor has access to the checkout, but ignores its config file at the same time.

    Best Wishes

    Yep, will take a look what could be done to improve diagnostics around that. Thanks for the update!
