Failed to properly upload, codecov failed with exit code 255

See original GitHub issue

I’m trying to upload codecov report for a private repo.

Upload token seems to be verified correctly, and coverage.xml is also found, but the upload still fails.

This is my first time opening an issue on Github. Apologies if I’m missing any critical information that I should provide. My workflow configuration is pretty simple and I can’t think of anything that might be causing this issue.


    - name: Test
          run: make test
    - name: Upload to Codecov
      uses: codecov/codecov-action@v2.0.1
        token: ${{ secrets.CODECOV_TOKEN }}
        files: ./coverage.xml
        fail_ci_if_error: true
        verbose: true

Same thing. Did some more digging, and I think I’ve got it figured out:

In the uploader, you validate tokens for being alphanumeric:

However, tokens (at least mine) are UUIDv4 strings, which are not alphanumeric, as they contain hyphens. The code extracting tokens sees this and blanks it out as invalid. When I manually set the token in the action to notrealtoken, which is alphanumeric, I see -> Token set by environment variables in the logs, and the actual request to upload turns into a Bad Request instead of Not Found.

I think either by swapping the validator in the uploader to isUUID (assuming all of your issued tokens indeed are that format), things will work.

Additionally, you may want to enhance the output logs to indicate that you’ve found an invalid value for a token in an expected location for one in the token helper.

@thomasrockhu I encountered the same issue moments ago, and it seems to still be the case:

This is on a private repo. Swapping to v1 with no other changes allowed the upload to go through.

Worth noting: the repo did not previously have codecov set up at all, and the initial setup was attempted on a branch.
