Codecov stuck in "Processing..." for commits of a public GitHub repository


If you open the commits page of our Codecov project, you’ll see that

  1. Some commits (4-6 days old) are stuck in the “Processing…” state.
  2. The list of commits is not up-to-date, as it misses the latest GitHub commits.

By clicking on the “Processing…” button, for example this link, Codecov reports “Unable to find report content in the storage archive.”, but those commits exist on GitHub.

Additional Information


Hi @fpoli,

  1. Yes, we had an outage documented here. I believe this was a side effect during that time period.
  2. It looks like you have some commits in that time frame that do not run the coverage workflow. That’s probably why we didn’t get coverage reports.

I would recommend installing the GitHub Codecov app to help fix future problems

Hi @tom ,

We’re seeing a lot of commits stuck in “Processing…” in this repo too. You can see them in the commits page. This started from approximately the outage time and lasts several days without any sign of stopping. Is it for the same reason?

Hi @Moandor, this shouldn’t be related to that incident. I’m not quite sure why they are stuck in Processing, so I’ll bump up to the product team to get some resolution here. Thanks for bringing this up.

Hi @Moandor, looks like this is an issue on our side. It’s going to take some time to investigate and get a fix in. The main issue is that the repository is hitting a limit in number of uploads, so I would suggest, in the meantime if it’s possible, to add a step that uploads a few of the coverage reports to Codecov as a single step.

I see the same sort of issue for this repository. Is this possibly related to an outage or is there another underlying cause?

@mmoayyed, this is another underlying cause. I would suggest, if possible, uploading reports in the same Codecov step if this is a blocker or decreasing the number of builds. I apologize for the inconvenience here while we investigate a solution.

Thanks very much for the update. Please post back when you do find a solution.

I don’t quite follow your note on “uploading reports in the same Codecov step”. There are jobs that each test a particular area of the system via Github Actions, and each job posts the coverage results. How can I combine the step that runs the tests with the step that uploads the coverage results, as shown below?

      - name: Run Tests
        run: ./ ${{ matrix.category }}
      - name: Upload coverage to Codecov
        uses: codecov/codecov-action@v1.0.13
          flags: ${{ matrix.category }}
          fail_ci_if_error: true

@mmoayyed, I have seen other users upload the tests results using actions/upload-artifcact and then adding a job at the end of the CI flow that depends on all previous tests runs to upload coverage to Codecov. You can see this here underneath continuous-integration.yml

Thank you for the reference and example. I’ll see if I can re-org the build accordingly.

On a related note, is there a way one I can stop the processing of certain builds/commits on codecov? Seems like these jobs are suck, and would be good to have a way to cancel them.

Per the example, I modified my test job to upload coverage files when it’s done:

      - name: "Upload coverage file"
        uses: "actions/upload-artifact@v2"
          name: "cas-tests-${{ matrix.category }}.coverage"
          path: "./build/reports/jacoco/jacocoRootReport/jacocoRootReport.xml"

The output shows that the report(s) are uploaded successfully:

With the provided path, there will be 1 file(s) uploaded
Total size of all the files uploaded is 634992 bytes
Finished uploading artifact cas-tests-jmx.coverage. Reported size is 634992 bytes. There were 0 items that failed to upload
Artifact cas-tests-jmx.coverage has been successfully uploaded!

Then the reports are downloaded and uploaded to codecov:

      - name: "Download coverage files"
        uses: "actions/download-artifact@v2"
          path: "reports"
      - name: "Display structure of downloaded files"
        run: ls -R
        working-directory: reports

      - name: "Upload to Codecov"
        uses: "codecov/codecov-action@v1"
          directory: reports

Logs show that files were uploaded successfully:

If I try to actually see the report at the given link, I see: " There was an error processing coverage reports." There is no other information on that page and it’s unclear what the error in fact is.

What’s the best way to proceed from here?
